Treasure Island

Babatunde Aremu


Take Life Easy


The snake is without limb
Yet it climbs tree to the top
Likewise the snail is handless
It gradually reaches its destination
When you wake up daily
Give honour to the Creator
Worry not, be anxious not
A hasty man cannot
Exceed the ultimate location
Neither will the patient
Sleep by the wayside
Life's journey is step by step
Never lick hot soup in a haste
Otherwise you will get your tongue burnt
So, whatever faces you in life
Be calm and take it easy
For life can only be enjoyed
On the platform of easiness.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
