Today is Navy Day. While I am proud of our country’s defence forces and the men and women serving them, I read the comments of a post today where a few people wrote such things about the Navy that really saddened me. I salute you people for what you do and this is my contribution, a little poem in your honour.
Oh Ignorant Child
Proud I am, and you are not,
Brave I am and you may not.
You can be that, which I ever won’t,
You can hate but I can do that not.
U can leave but I Stand still
to protect the country on my own will.
You dishonour, you disrespect,
but an ignorant child you are I suspect!
It’s alright you know, I don’t mind,
no words, no offence can put me behind,
Because for me duty comes first,
I put myself at the last.
I swore that I will protect you always,
even if you are the ill-tempered case!
You know a parent won’t ever abandon,
the child you are, I will always pardon.
I stand infront of you guarding,
the enemies who threaten, I will be discarding.
Fear not my child, but do understand,
I will protect you, take you to safety, hold your hand.
The pain is all I don’t want to feel,
when you sometimes despise me at will.
I will be there I will be there,
don’t worry my child, for your protection for your care.
All I ask is not money not fame,
for me it will only be a fair game,
When you give me something I ask you for today
Only Respect, if you may!
