A STORY


I could write a story;
A story of how i made it,
I could write a story;
A story of how i danced to the sound of the Bata.
I could write a story;
A story of how i survived my pain,
I could write a story;
A story of how the earth shook upon my existence.

I could write a story;
A story of how i smiled in pain
I could write a story;
A story of how the ocean flows in its mightiness.
I could write a story;
A story of how beautiful i became from sorrow
I could write a story;
A story of how the gold passed through the furnace
I could write a story;
A story of how after failure i passed
I could write a story;
Stories of how a river flows pass a barrier.
I could write a story;
A story of how abiku survived
I could write a story;
A story of how the sky shed tears.
I could write a story;
A story of how i became a warrior
I could write a story
A story of how oya became Sango’s favourite.
I could write a story;
A story of foolishness
I could write a story
A story of the tortoise and the other animals.
I could write a story;
A story of wisdom
I could write a story
A story of obatala.
  
Only if i could write a story;

I would write of a story of survival, patience, wisdom and how
fair life is.
