Contemplation on the Odu Ogbe Iwori (Ogbe wene)

I took the road that was
in front of me
it seemed as good as any other
a bit feral
and out of use
but it would get me from
point A to
I wasn’t really sure where
but I figured I’d eventually find myself
someplace new
someplace different
I didn’t know it at the time
but it was an unusual choice
it turned out to be circuitous
at the best of times
at worst
which really didn’t matter much since
I didn’t exactly know where I was going
I still don’t
I have learned that
whatever road I chose
will be an adventure
