World Pulse taught me self-belief

When I set forth my journey
It was yet dark and gloomy
Only my mother’s shiny eyes
Brightened my path and a way to try
And later the anxious looks of my sisters
I was worried for them or they were for me?
My brother who is smaller than me
Advised me how to walk and see
My father I could not say farewell
For he had gone to find food as well
Determined and not surrendering
This is what I was always pondering
Now, I am on the way to find a way
Apart from home and far away

While I was tired and thirsty
I reached to a pleasant country
I only asked them a drop of water
A girl showed me the origin larger
On my quest to find some water
I met women alike my mother
They were benevolent, they were kind
They were optimist, they had open mind
They hold my hand and made me fly
On their world with pleasure and joy
They gave me hope to raise my voice
To speak my pains, fulfill my desires
This world is called the World Pulse
It made me hope and it made me help

World Pulse taught me to have self-belief
It is souvenir for my siblings to believe
