They think they know me
They think I want money
They think they know me
The think I want fancy things
They think they know me
They think I want security
They think they know me
Walking around in confidence saying
Oh this is the XYZ of women

Give me some respect
Give me some care
Give me some honesty
Give me some sincerity

Give me your ears

Give me your ears

Come, let us reason together
Give me a listening ear
Let us talk intelligently
Let us rub minds….
Treat me with honour
Like a human full of wisdom and grace

Then I can enjoy the security
I can enjoy the fancy things
I can enjoy the love
I can enjoy you


I love life
I love justice
I love to see ideas, connections and fulfilment.
Abimbola Olamide Iyun
