Sulaymon Tadese Faozahny
God made the World
Man made the City.
We don't believe that a man's life
Is like that of a chicken, or fish
Who have only one-dimensional Form of life.
Plan for today,
To change you into a better Person tomorrow.
We can't just float,
We must plan our lives.
If we are to make tomorrow
We need to plan for it today
Plans ahead, don't live Accidentally.
Life is too fragile and ephemeral
To be wasted,
What is your philosophy of living?
This delicate life!
When planning be careful
When excecuting be conscious
When falling be courageous.
That is the way to succeed in life!
Never submit yoursrlf to Frustration.
Man has gut to undergo Difficulties
His ability must always be testsd
He needs to be praised,
And criticized constructively;
Life is mixture of sorrow and Happiness,
So, prepare for both;
Not every lustrous thing last long.
Truth is always unpalatable.
