On Y

On Yesterday 

The tears of yesteryears were once tears of today, yet our faces are dry. 

The hurt of yestermonths were once hurt of today, yet our hearts are healed. 

The pain of yesterday still feels like the pain of today but soon our souls will be soothed. 

On Youth 

There has got to be some mathematical explanation for why your youth days are created for you to truly find yourself AND why youth looks a lot like youth

Daniel Adeyemi read this and sent me an edit: ‘…be in your own class/category, like how you’re not 1st, 2nd,3rd,4th, 5th.. But you’re  youth’ 

I love him. :’) 

On Yes

‘The bride may now read her wedding vows‘ 

‘Husband. I could say that word over and over and over again till forever and they would still sound like ‘I’m privileged.’ ‘I’m honoured’. I am so honoured to be standing here right in front of you, reading my vows. It’s a little strange that everyone here is watching and behaving as if it’s natural for a transcendental being to be getting married to an earthling like me. I promise not to make you miss heaven so much. 

Friend. You bring new light to the word. What kind of person thinks first of his friend before he thinks of himself. Like the two accidents we’ve been involved in, and the fire incident at the cinema.  In those unexpected distress situations, you have shown me your unprecedented automatic selflessness and love for me. I promise to always be your friend first, before I think of the burns or the mistakes. 

Yes. You have taught me that a person can say yes without an implied ‘you owe me’, and that’s so rare. And I know you believe in me because you don’t just give me yeses, you also are my affirmation.  I promise to be your affirmation when you’re unsure… And you won’t have to owe me anything. I also promise to say yes when the pastor asks if I’ll take you to be my lawfully wedded husband. I won’t sly’

  • Awwwm deep wedding vow 😭😭😭 I want to marry, lool she had to say naw.
    πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘ hmm so you’re now a Yoruba genius like adepegba, me I dunno how my own Yoruba stands 😞

  • Is it the exams? Todays post is exceptionally “Deep and Serious”……. πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ

  • That Bridal vow is so deep; got me thinking -do we really read these vows after the wedding? We need frame and place conspicuously in our rooms as a reminder. it will deepen commitments

    God bless you Boro

    • Exactly! Been to a few weddings where they let them read vows (but only at the reception… Not the church πŸ™) Whereas the vows are the couples’ original words, thoughts and promises to each other
