Because I staggered, I learned to walk majestically,

Because I stammered, I learned to talk royally,

Because I struggled, I learned to live with dignity,

Because I surrendered, I survived victoriously,

Because I drooped down, I learned humility,

Because I persevered, I learned the value of work,

Because I loved, I learned the value of friendship,

Because, I treated my rags with pride,

God gave me the riches

Because He knew

I would treat them with humility.
