Seun Bewaji

Caught at the Peak of Pleasure

From the history of the world
Since its foundation was set
And its tentacle spread
It has never been told
No one has penned it
That a damsel commit whore
With her own self
I was caught in the very act
At the very peak
Of the feast of pleasure
I silence the pricking conscience
The whetting blade of the law
But suddenly besieged
By the passionate accusers
Armed with the clubs of law
I was dragged from my partner
No room was given to me
To clean up my filth
Or cover my shame
The value of womanhood
The dignity of our culture
Though the law condemned both
But they spared my whorish partner
I was dragged to the Galilean
The symbol of grace
I scream my life out
Pleading for a dropp of mercy
To escape the furry of law
My heart jumped from my mouth
My thought became wild
Like the Gadarane madness
There is no evidence any more
To seal my damnation
My filthiness has condemned me
The nakedness gazed by all
Pave way for the hanging furry
But grace behold my fault
And saw my need of Him
He heard my silence plea
He felt the agony of my folly
The weakness of the flesh
He stooped to the ground
Being deeply weighed down
By the horror I went through
He disarmed my accusers
And spoke to their conscience
They never gain strength
To use the club of the law
But took to their heels
And left me alone
For grace to acquaint me
Neither do I condemn you
Go and sin no more
My quilt fades away
My accusers vanish away
When grace pardoned
And mercy spared
My judge turned to savior
