So dazzling to behold
With a tinted smiles it glowed
Couldn’t resist the adventure in the globe
My souls sings akwaaba! Akwaaba!
Drowning my fear cling to the heart
Dagwi ra’sele a voice whispered

I plunged into the razzling adventure
With an overflowing mindset of manning the game
Unmoved the courage stood still
Waiting for an encounter with the goddess
Hahaha, the Oracle of wooers
My ego boast of past victory, unknown to me
Was a fate of doom

A bait was placed, catching a big fish
The time has come to feast on my prey
Behold! The doom is near
The once dazzling beauty was only but a pretty cover page
Now, the words of the gods rang heavily in my ears
Agwa bu’nma nwanyi
Mummy will always say “mete onye Dinma enyi”

Oh! Thy over zealous courage
Has opened my eyes to the knowledge beyond
I beckoned on my encounter to set straight the record
And ever since “All that glitters” became my watchword.
