Idolatry I have for them
They taught me most of the things I know
If it were not for them
the intelligence I possess would only be a wish.

Papa was the one who took care of me
from a very young age.
He changed my nappies, bathed me
and fed me.

I grew up fast which is in my mother’s genes.
Papa instilled good values in me.
I am loved and cherished for my virtues.
I live by standards and morals.

Mama taught me how to read and write.
Generally because of her I love reading and writing.
She means the world to me.

I can never truly give them enough
for education is a priceless gift.
I wish to give them a gift that could somehow mean as much.
Because not even a mansion as a home would be enough.
