Schooling and gratefulness

In light of everything Schooling currently in the press, here’s a little nice poem to keep things in perspective.

Why is Schooling so special?
Because his dad said he is just an ordinary person.

Why is Schooling so inspirational?
Because he was inspired by a swimming giant.

Why is Schooling so fast?
Because he took his time to give thanks.

Why is Schooling so cheered by his competitors?
Because he took delight in watching them swim.

Why is Schooling welcomed home by so many?
Because he flew back to be with family and friends.

Why is Schooling so Singaporean?
Because he was hungry for “chai tao kway”.

Why are we filled with renewed confidence?
Because Schooling had his doubts and turned them to moments of victory.

Why did we cry when we saw the Singapore flag flown high?
Because his dad wept tears of joy and said it is all about love.

Why did we write so much about Schooling?
Because he had just started a new chapter in the history of Singapore.

A chapter with words such as love, believe, blessed, thankfulness.

Singapore, keep writing…..
