Poem: What Is Life by Umaru Fofana

A man is born today, Tomorrow he is dead.

A man lives in a mansion today, Tomorrow he lives underground.

A man drives a car today, Tomorrow an ambulance drives him.13438795_10153588009151921_8443441673524151700_n

A man eats whatever he wants today, Tomorrow he becomes food for insects.

A man is always early for work today, Tomorrow he is termed “Late”.

A man rests in his house today, Tomorrow he is resting in a grave.

A man eats all kinds of fruits today, Tomorrow he becomes manure for those trees.

A man is today one of the richest men, Tomorrow he doesn’t even know about his riches.
