this path you’ve chosen to take may tear you apart,
you will be tagged here as an African bastard.
for we celebrate birth, marriage and death more
then we eat, drink and dance for every other thing.
I’m aware the world has changed, and there’s a new trend
but this is not who we are nor what we stand for.
your aunt, Amaka, was banished when we were kids
because she was caught peeping at another girl.
the real reason why grandpa stopped going to church
is because uncle B told him about the priest.
but if you choose to fight for love, for her, it’s fine
but this should be the last time you call me brother.
