The student that I am today was all for you
But still you say there’s more I need to do
My friends say their parents praise me
But all I need is YOUR praising
I make poems and stories I’m good at art
I do sports and I think I’m kinda smart
I’m good at speaking, my memory is fine
I just want you to be loving parents of mine
I play basketball, football, skating, hula hoops
Chess, ludo, snake and ladders I lost count, oops!
They say I’m multi-talented so what more could you want more?
Wait, I feel like I’ve been here before.
Of course, All my life I wanted to be worth
Something valuable ever since birth
Be very loved and make a change in the earth
Even if I was your first child or your fourth
So dear parents, please dont ignore
My desperation for wanting more
I’m just like you always wanting a lot
More than what we had always got
I’m trying my best to make you proud
Can’t you hear it, is it not loud enough?
From you I want love, I want praises
Then I will never forget those dear phrases.
