Who Saw Me.

It's not all about the time of hurray
It's all about the time of reflection
With ease I came to this world in jubilation
While at 7days just only eko and sukusuku for the naming of the great one all the way.

Who saw me when the tides were down?
When from do re mi fa so la ti do, life descends to; do ti la so fa mi re do I ask; who saw me?
At childhood, orisa ewe kept me growing while the world kept choking me
All in all, I ask again; who saw me?

How could the mighty fall but many times I've fallen with unseen scars, tears and pains
I've sailed many a voyage through the thick turbulent storm with the anchor failing to hook
Many times I've lost my place to dine and wine with the great men of varlour and Kings
Who saw me as my journey so far is like pages of an inspirational book.

Who saw me when I started again the rigorous journey of grass to grace?
Who saw me when I braced up to set the law in motion changing negative narratives to positive?
Who saw me when I decided changing my tears to a blossom charming smile?
Who saw me when I made up my mind and said NEVER AGAIN to the falling of a man?

With joy and gladness of heart, I wanna rejoice, dine and wine
Mukulumuke I will dance sweetly as I grow older today and forget all my trouble
As the era has come, never again will I be at the middle but at the top so bright and shine
An era when those known and unknown will be willing, wishing and ready to wine and dine at my table.
