Huzaidi Hashim

The Tree of Wisdom

The tree of wisdom summons

The souls of victors dead

Stand forth above the commons

As we soar thru’ mines ahead

 

Admirals pulling their weight

As the compass sets to shore

A journey that can ne’er wait

Endless purpose is our chore

 

Wise are the sages of time

Unraveling the secrets of lore

Staging the essence of rhyme

Beckoning the warriors afore

 

Time shall not besiege us

As the battle rages on

Dreams shall not abandon us

Until our mission is done

 

A school is what we plan

to start and shall not end

To reach the elusive honor

of scholarly stupend

    The poem is dissected to reveal it's meanings!

    The tree of Wisdom - symbolizes the strength our unity

    The tree of wisdom summons - Our unity demands our attention

    ... The souls of victors dead - it calls for the hero within us

    Stand forth above the commons - to come out of the crowd

    As we soar thru’ mines ahead - to brave thru dangers ahead


    Admirals pulling their weight - commanders share responsibility

    As the compass sets to shore - a direction to focus on

    A journey that can ne’er wait - we must move now

    Endless purpose is our chore - because this is a lifetime commitment


    Wise are the sages of time - our wise leaders have a dream

    Unraveling the secrets of lore - quoting the success of our past

    Staging the essence of rhyme - setting the pace to follow

    Beckoning the warriors afore - raising our fighting spirits


    Time shall not besiege us - won't give up just coz it needs time

    As the battle rages on - we will persist even if it is difficult

    Dreams shall not abandon us - we will remain resilient

    Until our mission is done - until our objectives are met


    A school is what we plan - we want to build a school

    to start and shall not end - once set up. we will keep it up

    To reach the elusive honor - so that our kids will be able to gain

    of scholarly stupend - an international top-class education
