Boys yesterday, grown men today
Then we sought to be led,
now we must lead the way.
When we played football on the streets
with coins in our pockets
we ran to buy sweets.
Amazing how time flies
Memories of tears I shed
when the whip met my little back
because i has to get wisdom into my head.
Now I embrace manhood
I try to stay prepared and always do good.
Then we talked of the future
Now in it we feature.
It used to be “hide and seek” we played
Times have changed
Now we learn we must seek a wife
to provide for and protect for life.
Boys of yesterday, grown men today
Time waits for only nobody
Yesterday becomes history
when Today becomes the present
leaving tomorrow as a mystery.
In my years i have learnt that-
I must do my best one day at a time
