Early In The Morning - Poem by Babatunde Aremu

It is a herculean task
To go down the riverside at dawn
To fetch cool water
But its coolness refreshes at noon
A palm frond is better weaved
Early in the morning
Ere sun shine dries it up
Eyes that will see at old age
Does not itch constantly at young age
If a man must be great
He must learn early to work hard
During the morning part of life
Whatever we will be tomorrow
Depends on the type of foundation
Laid early in the morning
So, if you want a better tomorrow
Lay a solid foundation
Early in the morning of your life
