What a wonderful world.

Young grow old.
Poor become rich.
Dawn become night.
Friends become enemies.
We live to die.

In few hours this day shall be yesterday.
Every second gone is lost.
Today's activities shall be history.
Depending on what a day bring us we shall tell.
The sweet memories of today we shall tell with joy.
The bad memories we shall tell as encouragement or regret.
It is so natural you cannot live without a day.
You can't escape tomorrow except the CREATORS calls you this day.
What tomorrow brings is a fate we can only tell a day after.

After the sojourn on earth heaven or hell awaits us.
Even the devil prays to make heaven.
Yes, we want heaven but fear death.
Afraid or not, poor or rich, handsome,beautiful or ugly we all must answer that call someday.
What a wonderful world!
