Yonder are the bricks of red


Yonder are  the bricks of red
Girding our dreams and hopes
Alma Mater so dear and old
Whose motto we do uphold
Light!! Light!! Light to lighten!!
Keep it glowing till the end of the world
Light!! Light!! Light to lighten!!
Keep the light of life aglow.

Cherished and taught by her
We are sent out into the world
To break the fetters of pain
And to lift up the weak ad slain
Live!! Live!! Don't just exist!!
Conquer the fold, and lead the whole world
Live!! Live!! Don't just exist!!
Is the silent plea of her soul.

Oh STS how may we
Try to be worthy of thee
Now standing of life's threshold
We pay our homage to thee
Reach!! Reach!! Reach for the heights!!
And when you get there, Reach for the next star
Reach!! Reach!! Reach for the heights!!
Is the challenge that we must take. 


Some things in life are never to be forgotten, never erased. Some words are by heart. So is my school song. Trust me, I typed it in one go, word by word. I sometimes sing the last paragraph. It gives me energy to go on. To live by the promise. To never give up, keep going, even when it gets tough. 

Life maybe really cruel, or maybe so is what you think!! 





This post is dedicated to the A-to-Z blogging challenge - the largest Blog Challenge in the history of Blogkind. My selected theme is "memories of St. Thomas' "- my Alma mater. This is the twenty fifth  post of the challenge, and is linked to the letter Y: Yonder are the bricks of red. 

Linking this post to UBC too.
