Today gives me the chance to explore

And collect tomorrow’s hay

On lands unmapped before

As I narrow the gap every day.


Today helps me forget the bygone years

When the drainage got all my strive

And I lost buckets of tears

Today I see my chance to thrive.


Today fashions my divine purpose

To dare dream and do my own bidding

As I add one more brick, I suppose

To the art of nation building
