Everymorning I wake up,
Finish my morning chores, and get to work,
I make a target for the day,
But I don't know how much I would complete!
The whistle blows at the dock,
The sailors aboard their ships,
The anchors rise from the sea bed,
But I don't know how many ships will reach the next coast!
A nation goes to war,
Its army readies itself against the enemies',
Soldiers full of optimism stride confidently into the field,
But I don't know how many will come back!
Parents love their children,
Bring them up and give them a life,
Thinking they would be supported in their old age,
But I don't know how they end up in an old age home!
Such is the life of man,
He toils for his aspirations, spends all energies after them,
Halves his sleeping time, and shuns his pleasures,
But he doesn't know how much he will achieve!
It is but the vanity of man,
That makes him so confident, so ambitious,
So greedy, he cares zilch for his fellow beings,
But he doesn't know how much God knows!
So my fellow beings, lets surrender ourselves to the Almighty,
For it is only He who knoweth all and
It is only He who can guide us to our desires.
Let us forget all our troubles and gather one more time
At the table of He, who knoweth all.
And live happily ever after.
