Home is shelter
Home is love
Home is diamond, silver and gold
Home is precious like a priceless jewel. 

Home is not made of bricks
Glued with mud and limes
Home is not strong tower
Roofed with rusty bucklers
To protect lives from poisonous drops of rain
And from the scorching sun.  

Home can never be liken to a palace,
Of a royal king
Furnished with diamond, silver and gold
Acquired through a greedy sting.  

Home can never be liken to a prison
Built for innocent inmates
Floored with mud and lime
And haunts by ants at night.  

Family is shelter
Family is love
Family is diamond, silver and gold
Family is precious like a priceless jewel
Family is home. 

Its foundation is love
Dug with endurance
Family is a beautiful mansion
Built with dried bricks of perseverance.

Family is stronger than bricky towers
Moulded with limes and clay
Family is bond in unity and trust
A shelter for every weary soul.
