Save Today for Tomorrow by Miss Assumpta Ajanankem

Today we can clearly see

Tomorrow we can’t clearly see

Our hands, our tools, the soil, our boots yet, our bands their joy, packed in the boots for loots

Young destinies, soaring in fateless feathers

With tiny voices whispering to unseen fathers

Save today for tomorrow

Or tomorrow will be born to hunt today

Save today for tomorrow

Or tomorrow may never see the remains of today

Save mother earth, save today

Plant a tree to shade our tomorrow

Save education, save today

Fill the shelves, or live to borrow

Save the stars of the day, save today

Feed the young, never to sorrow

Save Nigeria, save today

The giant of Africa can’t go under the burrow

Save today, no box for decay

The present we brightly see

The future, more brightly we see
