Why You Should Celebrate! Poem by Julius Babarinsa


Do you have to wait for your next birthday?
To celebrate that you are alive and well
When you wake-up everyday
You need to celebrate
As hundreds who went to sleep last night
Did not wake-up this morning
When your children arrive from school
You need to celebrate because not all
The children who went to school today
Returned home safely and securely
Why should you celebrate?
Husband and wife living happily together
Need to celebrate because not all the
Newly-weds last year are living together today
Why should you celebrate?
If you have a job and a roof over your head
You need to celebrate because not all those
Who were working last year have a job today
Why should you celebrate?
If your father or your mother is still alive
You need to celebrate because there are many people
Who wish they have a father or mother to talk to
Why should you celebrate?
If you are surrounded by good and decent friends
You need to celebrate because there lots of people
Who wish they have your type and caliber of friends
If you are one of the lucky few with grandchildren
You need to celebrate because there several people
Who would like to have a family like your own
Please be thankful and rejoice that you are alive
Remember to celebrate your existence on this earth
