First Thing I Do When I Get Up
When I get up in the morning, first thing I do:
say my prayers.
I ask God to clear the way,
so, I know what to do this day.
I know I have a job I have to go to, but I also know I have other responsibilities and I pray I will do them to the best of my ability.
First, I think of food,
because it puts me in a good mood.
Then I want to leave my house clean,
which gives me a happy gleam.
And when I come back home,
my house is my castle
and there is no hassle to keep it in good shape.
When time comes to go to bed, I feel happy I planned the day so well.
I thank my God who helped me through the day.
Thank you, God.
