Olodumare



Olodumare
this what the yorubas call you

Olodumare
I can't dispute your name

Each night your skin glitters
we call it the stars

Each time you urinate
we call it the rain

And anytime you stick out your shoulder
from heaven
we make mistake and call it the moon

Olodumare
the king of these nine bubbles round the sun

The king larger than the whole world
with palace white up above
and everyone knows you control Death
that's why you live
today, tomorrow, and for evermore

Olodumare
who hears of the wicked ones
but favors the weak
and makes the wicked tremble
at his feet

Olodumare
the king
the only shoulder to cry on
at all times

The only pillar to rest on
and will never fall

The only one with the longest hand
that rescues anyone from a pit fall

Olodumare is the one.

Samuel C. Enunwa aka samueldpoetry
(I'm the trumpet in tongue of Olodumare)
