Morning Has Dawned

It is morning again

The sun has started shooting its bessings on Earth.

Birds are awake and singing their praises to the maker.

They do not plant or harvest.

They do not gather or store.

The Lord just feeds them and that is why they sing their praises.

You too are awake!


It is morning again!

There are 24 hours before you.

Maybe you are awake or still in bed.

The clock is ticking on.

It minds not what you are doing or planning to do.

The clock ticks on.

Soon it will be dark again.

Will you have achieved the aims of the day?

Or you will be still kilometres away from your blessings.


It is morning again!

What can you show for the other mornings before this?

Do not waste time on gossip.

Avoid useless games and movies

Do something constructive.

Soon the day will be over.


It is morning again!

A new day is heralded

New blessings are in store.

We need to tap in them.

Finish that project you began.

Start a new project now.

It is a new Dawn.


It is morning again!

Put enough energy on your work.

Do not dilly dally but put in your best.

This is the only time you have for that work.

You may not get any other time again.

This is the time.


It is morning again!

You have aged.

You move towards the grave.

Use this time as it is the only one left.

This second, this minute may be your last.

There are sick people needing this time.

They are too sick to use it.

Use time well.

It is morning again!
