I carry my mind keep for front with di belief sey e go beta.
As water dey comot from my eye,
Na so I remain deh on top bed wey come dey like chuku chuku for my body.
I try open teeth mek e be like sey I happy but my laugh sef no reach belle.
I come wish sey I get wetin I fit do wey fit mek things beta.
This na one kind pain wey no good at all
But I no even get strong mind to gree sey na pain.
Di thing bin happen with plenty “e go beta” tori but till now di tori na di same
