It's not only read and write
but how to listen and speak out
And comprehend to enforce in life
Book and ink are the future baton

literacy is my crony now and then
With it my eyes extended in distends
My ears listen and apparent unseeyn
I can communicate my anguish in prison

Of course I have not forgot your equality
For you embrace humanity to spearhead
Oh! literacy you are mentor, inspirer and Influencer in my work of life

It was you that I stand for my concealed
The right to hear, see, listen, and speak
You tell how sanitary life is beneficial
How mirrorlike is my neighbors to me
Lementably and blissfully I express
