MAN TODAY, DUST TOMORROW

MAN TODAY, DUST TOMORROW – By John Chizoba Vincent

Man Is no diviner nor a god
Why cast your burden on man?
Man today, dust tomorrow
Why trust in his abilities?

The earth belongs to no man
Evil created by men are irreparable
In the tattered book of life’s treasures
Why depend on the treasure of this world?

We are here today: a journey
A misery, owing a debt; passing through
pains yet, we die without fulfillment
Man today, dust tomorrow.

Storried Man Today Dust

Won’t we be permitted to number our days?
Can’t we know when the killjoy comes?
Man is nothing but a vain thing vision-less.
Man is no god or a saviour, why worship him?

Man is worthless, oh man is worthless!
Mirror my echoing words of a bitter truth
The world has no meaning, it is meaningless!
Man today, dust tomorrow, what is the value of life?
No lasting merriment, war songs echoing, all is lost!

Trust only the man above!
But not with a whole man’s value
Man in nature is evil and deadly
Trust only the man above with your spirit.

Man is no diviner nor a god
Why cast your burden on him?
Man today, dust tomorrow
Why trust in his abilities?
