MY CONFESSION By Adeniji Obasanjo

Written by Editor

I have a confession to make father
My life hasn’t been moving further
I have departed from the way of the lord
I am dinning with the devil
I rose from fame to shame

He promised to keep me safe
He kept my secret and I kept his
I got married to him thinking I was in my right sense
I endured with the hope he will change

Years have gone now father!!
All I see is love messages from his lovers
Picture of him dancing with strippers
Videos of him and his friend having a drinking contest
But father haven’t I been patient

I lost my dignity to him
Thinking he would replace it with affection
Now everything is over
I can never start over
My heart is weak and sober
I wished I never knew him.

This is my confession
