After this! What Next? (Poem)

As of a Child

Wanting good edibles

Just to satisfy my hunger

Having someone that accomplish it

Made my joy full, a life worth of all

Oh! Fulfillment personified

But a question has always arise

After this! What next?


As of a Pupil

Desiring break time

Just to play into happiness

Having our time keeper bang the bell

Made my joy full, a life worth of all

Oh! Fulfillment personified

But a question has always arise

After this! What next?


As of a Boarding student

Waiting for holiday

Just to meet my parent and old friends

Having the principle announcing the holiday

Made my joy full, a life worth of all

Oh! Fulfillment personified

But a question has always arise

After this! What next?


As of a Student

Desiring and toiling for excellence

Just to make my parents proud

Having seen my results of flying colors

Made my joy full, a life worth of all

Oh! Fulfillment personified

But a question has always arise

After this! What next?


As of a Young bachelor

Desiring a pattern for life

Just to be married and responsible

Having met and married to my love

Made my joy full, a life worth of all

Oh! Fulfillment personified

But a question has always arise

After this! What next?


As of a Preacher

Desiring souls be won to Christ

Just to fulfill the reason for the call

Having seen multitude on an altar call

Made my joy full, a life worth of all

Oh! Fulfillment personified

But a question has always arise

After this! What next?


As of a Graduate

Desiring a profitable workplace

Just to make life earnings

Having received an employment letter

Made my joy full, a life worth of all

Oh! Fulfillment personified

But a question has always arise

After this! What next?


As of a Child of God

Desiring to be Christ-like, while on earth

Just to be accepted by God and men

Having heard good testimonies from men

Made my joy full, a life worth of all

Oh! Fulfillment personified

But a question has always arise

After this! What next?


Hum! Fulfillment personified

The worth of a life

But we must note

There is always a new place to dear

After each single fulfillment

So, Merry with joy but remember

This question that always arise

After this! What next?
