Comments about Babatunde Olaifa
Someone asked a question several years ago.
It didn’t make sense to me then so I let it go
‘Why bother myself with that now’ was what I thought
The answer would be ‘yes’ anyway when the time comes
So I went back to playing with my friends;
Then I went to school;
Shortly after that I got married
People said I had become ‘responsible’
What for, they didn’t say.
Woke up this morning and didn’t feel like work
Something just didn’t seem right
Whatever happened to all the dreams I had growing up?
