My Life. - Poem by Michael Olakunle Adesanya

Fading away like the stars of the morning
Gaining my light in the glorious sun
I will pass from the earth and it's toiling
Only remembered by what i have done.

Only the truth that in life I have spoken
Only the seed that on earth I have sown;
These shall pass onward when I am forgotten
Fruits of the harvest and what I have done.

Shall I missed, though by other
succeeded, reaping the field I
In spring time have sown?
Yes, but the sowers must pass
from their labours
ever remembered by what I have done.
