What happens?

What happens when you build a tower over your heart?

Selfishly guarding yourself with Shaka’s shield.

You bad, so you no wan cry,

How you go do?

For the first time in 365 days and some months,

You meet someone who makes you feel some type of way

After much locking up; waving the celibacy flag,

How I for do?

Suddenly I am confused, different emotions clashing…

But I am rusty from many days of ‘staying home’, na wa!

Today, We sit closely and I cannot help myself.

How I for do?

So I begin to talk, going on and on like a chatterbox,

He leaves and he does not turn to say goodbye.

What have I done? Why I no just lock up?

Then I ask myself. “Shebi you don Kuku gree

Your husband is on his way.”

But how I for do?
