Today is New Year's Day
oh my what should I do?
Here comes another year
so many plans---what should I do?
I hurry here and hurry there
to enjoy this celebration
but I think I missed the most important part---
my new year's resolution!
Here comes a new year that lies in my hands
where I can choose where my deeds land
----oh my what should I do?
I promise not to ruin mother's plants
or climb a tree and rip my pants
and not to put a frog in sister's head
or to blame it on someone instead
oh wait I forgot the most important part-----
my life, and education!!
I'll try my best to be good
like every good Muslim should
I'll help the needy
and the poor
and to keep open my door
to teach and preach
and to look up to our imams
to support my religion
and to keep away from harm
so many things I have to fix
---oh my what should I do?
I'll do all my roses
and I'll never miss one
I'll seek for knowledge
I'll learn a ton----oh wait I forgot the most important part
I must thank the lord of creations!
I'm thankful to live up to this year
even thought my death draws near
I'll be ready, brave and strong
I'll be ready to stand against the wrong.
I thank the lord for family and friends
and for the blessings that never end
I ask him to keep me on the right path
away from the astray
and I'll never betray
my sweet peaceful religion Islam
Now you see New Year isn't about all this celebration
I think it's all about life, future and and education
