Learn To Swim

As it all cascades like waterfalls, I can’t believe
Can’t conceive it.
That something so dangerous could be home to broken bones and limbs.

In the depths of its beauty
An abyss lies there
Olokun greets you with a Wisdom known to few
So you retreat and run because You cannot possibly be one of those few?

Or does the beauty of the abyss ensnare your heart…
This love for the unknown and hunger for Wisdom?
Will you let Ọṣun plague your mind with her beauty?

Or raise your head far above The Water so you don’t drown after falling off of that Slave Ship?
