A Will So Free - Poem by Korede Abiodun

If my will has been so free
I would have been
Among the birds of the sky
Soaring high
Gliding light
Above the tides
Dwell close to the gods
And whenever the Sky mourn her lost
I'd seek refuge among the crawlers
Alas, another prey for the hunter

If my will has been so free
I'd have been among the lilies
Of the green field with
Close watch by the Eyes of the Sea
Sways here and there, now and then
Imitating the dance of the fair maidens
I wouldn't worry for food
I'd sleep with the dews
Wake with the morning sun
And the sound of the wind
I'd be a happy earth-dwellers
Alas, torn and trampled by the Walkers

If my will has been so free
As the sea hold know bonds from a fish
Wild and free
Cool and still
Haven for another happy fish
The air don't cost
Eyes of the oceans
Eyes of the gods
So strained a chain
Canoes and big boats
Hooks and nets
Darned humans
Always smokin' complainin'
Asking when they'll ever be happy

When death beckons
And I heed, if I die
So young
Let me be immolate
And add colour to the four winds
Sway over the mountains
O'er the hills
Over the vales
And the 7 seas
Where peace of a river
Rocks and make me shiver
