As you fell on your knees
Saying “I can explain”
The unexplainable hurt I felt at that moment
Is still so fresh
Minutes have rolled into days
But my heart still aches

Tádé, how could you?
How could you forget our vows so soon?
What happened to ‘always and forever’?
What happened to your “Ọlo̒run ló n sọmọ”
And “God’s time is the best”?

So you already have Táǹ̒
The one we’ve been looking for
To think màmá and aunty Ṣadé have been aware all along
Makes me feel like a flower surrounded by thorns
Do they call her mum yàwó wa” too?

Tádé, how could you?
How could you give up on us?
How could you give up on God?


  1. It is indeed a difficult situation for expectant couples, especially the man, which of course is due to pressure from his family, especially when he is the only male child in his family. Mama wants to see her grandchild(ren) before she goes to her grave. However, in my own opinion, nothing justifies infidelity (calling a spade a spade) in marriage. We all owe expectant couples our prayers for grace to find joy and strength in each other as they look to God and trust in Him.
