Treasure Island

Bolami lawal


Tomorrow will rise


Today is battered,
bound in fears and filled with griefs;
today is smitten,
bruised within and burried in pains,
when the tides of life
humbled this day in defeat,
carcasses of dreams fell in parts
upon the ground tomorrow will tread;

And so, today's torn;
afraid for tomorrow's lot,
if surrounded by foes;
how would tomorrow rise?

Tell today tomorrow will rise,
above it's woes and foes alike;
tell today tomorrow will live,
and so, would our dreams with it;
tell today tomorrow will rise,
high above the storms of life....

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
