Tell My Mother - Poem by Gbolagade Taiwo

I've gone out to look for my right
I'm out in search of what belongs to me
This life is not to be lived without good fortune
I want to search for my own portion of the fortune
Oh you passers-by!
I beg of thee
Tell my mother I've gone for good
I want her to enjoy the fruit of the womb
Her labour must not go without a pay
Tell her not to worry about my health
I'm going out to exploit the earth
Even if it will take me through the Lough
I will go there with a full plough
My mama must see my joy
She must enjoy her work
Tell her I'm coming back to restore her peace
Till icome, let her mind be at peace
