LABINNAH’S LEGEND by ‘Lakunle Jaiyesimi

timeWith blood,

I scribble in earth

Your name!

With a trail of your strides

Non-conformist, yet benevolent

that in obeisance of “whatever ye do to the least of these ones”

Olodumare will lighten your paths

And bestow on generations beyond you

A deserved honour, extracted by your own blood and sweat

spent on the paths you lead,

for the others, without a thought.

Yours is a life of exemplariness,

A torch that goes ahead of a multitude

Irrespective of creed and tilt.

I have been but a student

at the doorpost of your tutelage

lapping on bits of how justice, mercy and scolds

all mix into one edifice.

Years had gone,

and yet, you are that golden egg

sequestered amongst others

and reflecting the brilliance of the rays of the Sun from above.

May Olodumare shine on our paths,

and may this day, each year, always speak to us

the words of courage, growth, love and justice.

Happy birthday brother!

I love you…
