Eden

I have found rest
In the city of four rivers
Where the mystery lies,
Now unhidden and revealed.
Let it be known
to the queen that governs the coasts,
I have gone far from where
I once called home
and I have found rest
in the city of four rivers.

Eden chose me
Where I learnt to be free
And aware of the treasures in me,
Where I revel in the victory dance of saints
Like the Ekombi of the south gate
Extolling the maturity of the woman

I have chosen Eden,
The place of stammering lips
And rolling tongues as the
unresting complex rhythms
of the two toned bàtá drums
that communicates the refreshing,
“the rest with which you may
cause the weary to rest”.

Where angels ascend and descend
In response to the vibes of renewed spirits.
The ancient chants of the cherub choir
in response to the rise of the daystar
in the hearts of those who behold
the brightness of the Son,
From which assurance and revelations abound.
I speak of the beholding.

I have found rest
In the city of four rivers.
Let it be known to Àdùnní,
The desire of my futures,
that I’m home from my exile,
where my life juice was sapped daily
and my soul sought refuge in my bane.
But I am home now
And I’ve found rest
in the city of four rivers
