His Abefe,
I have learnt recently
That whatever life offers me
Accept it wholeheartedly
That I shouldn’t let it break me
But instead build me.

Remember the devil thought to himself
That he was winning by killing Jesus
But was actually catalysing Jesus’ victory.

In everything I do,
Or situations I find myself in,
Good or bad,
I try to convince myself
To be thankful
And I’m convinced
And in all, I’m grateful.

See Abefemi, Ayo ni tie
Please Ayanfe, don’t be deceived
You know I do tell you
That you’re unique
God created everyone to be unique
So, for that you should thank him.

For you to be as wonderful as you are
For you to be as beautiful as you are
For someone telling you that you look good
Is enough to thank him.

Once I was told of the future
The future is bright
No matter what seems your path
Follow your heart
Listen to your heart
Do not trust the earth
It buries your troubles
But not for long
Why your heart?
Cos God dwells in there.

Wait did you smile at all?
Please, do that now…smile now
And be happy.
