My Stand

By Lucy Muthoni

I shall serve all with honesty

And show love for others

I shall show generosity

To those full of goodness

For all the loss of morality

I will encourage obedience

To the singles I advocate chastity

For this will add to our convenience

I will handle the faithful with kindness

And treat all with politeness

We should all embrace hard work

So as to take our glory book

Anyone who practices deceit

Even if its lack of a receipt

Shall wait at the gates of defeat

And ours shall be a great feat
