A reflection from the spiritual realm

I am Light
In psychic emblem of ‘Omanuku’ jungle
They dance the dance of initiation rumble
Whether of witchcraft or occult belonging
With young or old blending
Kissing kola nuts, palm fronds, cooked yam,
Fresh foliage stewed with face of jam

I snapped an octogenarian parading virgin breast
Singing modern music though illiterate to the crest

Things inexplicably sway
In climes of spirit and clay
A stew stained yam was offered ‘Onijogbon’
Heavenly standing only for good things born

“He is not eating
But merely chewing
Stylishly spitting it out with rage”
The Chief-initiator alerted comrades

Then my spirit
Spoke to my spirit:
“They now know you can’t belong
But was just playing along
Because you are light
Never to be polluted by powers of night
As there can be no peace between wrong and right”

(Written 24th June 2010 after having a revealing initiation dream about some known mortals). ‘Onijogbon’ is a Yoruba word, meaning someone who argues a lot without giving up, or someone who is very stubborn in pursuing a course.

"I am fascinated by this ethereal lines. Light and darkness will never have anything in common. Those who are in Light should not 'conform' or 'blend' to the dictates of false octogenarians spotting "virgin breasts". The challenge of existence in today's complicated world is that many innocent young persons have been conned into engaging into "dances that are not of this world" in the rotund cover of darkness and under the supervision of people who should be positive models in the right time and environment. This is often sadly the picture especially as we march into 2011. Let those who are truly light,remain light. The Lord knows His own. Well done, Mudiaga for pushing me to this dimension. I have thoroughly enjoyed myself."
