Contemplation on the Odu Iwori Meji

When traveling with hyenas
Don't get too comfortable
Watching as the pack
Tears apart its prey
In a frenzy of blind emotions
Without any true loyalty
You may find that tomorrow you
Are the object of their attentions

Contemplation on the Odu Ofun Meji

Before you open your mouth
before the thought enters your mind
before your eyes sit in judgement
before you put pen to paper
and with eyes closed
a walk across the tens of billions
of solar systems that we call neighbors
and tell me
without a hint of arrogance
that you have found truth
that your way is the right way
that redemption lies only in your belief
that you have found the one.
and with eyes open
the vanity in your words
What does truth mean
to a man sitting on the sun?
What will salvation look like
to a ray of light?
What can I say to you
so you can see the foolishness 
of your words?
Live your life
this one time
with meaning
and love
and stop thinking
you are more
than a grain of sand
at the base of a sand castle
about to be washed away
by the ebb and flow 
of eternity
