ABIKU (Durosinmi)

I will rather be a lover than
a fighter. There’s so much to fight for.
Ilé ayé ojà la wá tà,
(The world is a market place).
Make profits for the one who made us,
get a good taste of what earth feels like,
Make friends, and under the rain make love.

I will rather be a lover than
a fighter. There’s so much to live for.
Chase butterflies in a cool weather,
an evening by the lake side, alone.
Meet the sun and know what it feels like
to be hot and not burn yourself.

I will rather be a lover, than,
a fighter. I have reasons to live,
here on earth, where memories reside.

Victor Oyedele
