Awa alaye eniyan…

on

Wify was supposed to start a new job in the 2nd week of April. I got a gig the week the lockdown commenced, I was meant to submit budget and full proposal the week after. A project meeting was set up for the week after.

I had a (contract) job running that was just 2weeks old, it was paused immediately. Not to talk of a number of expectations and opportunities ahead….all halted by the Lockdown – better put by COVID-19.

These were my thoughts minutes ago and an old song dropped in my heart:

🎼🎼Awon alaye eniyan ni yi o ma yin o
Awon alaye eniyan ni yi o ma yin o
Baba modupe pe mo je okan ninu won
Awa alaye eniyan ni yi o ma yin o 🎶🎶

I was able to complain because I am not on a ventilator… Ten thousand (10,000) reasons to be thankful!

Cheer up…this too shall pass!

N:B
Translation of the song (originally in Yoruba)
It is the living that can praise you
It is the living that can praise you
Father I am grateful because I am part of the living
We the living will praise you
