I would adorn you with jewels,

You could teach them to shine

You, the jewel of our hearts

Mama Awon Boys

I would tell of your heart

You pump blood so we live

You, the hemoglobin of our spirits

Omo Junaid,

Your pride dignifies in its humility

We race in its courage

Its calm anchors us through all storms

Aya Kuku,

Your eyes are chocolate pools of love

We bathe langorously in their warmth

Their deliciousness sweeten the saddest hours


From you we suckle of life

Blessed are all who bore you

And this day that welcomed you
