Ìwàlewà
Beautiful faces like egbin: zebra;
Perfect shape like ejo: eight;
Dark eyelashes with egg-yellow skin like ewa: beans,
All is zilch, without it.
Ugly beauty!

Ìwàlewà
It’s not beauty!
That which they see when you catwalk and they catcall
It’s not beauty!
That which strolls in your six parks making them say: Sexy!
It’s not beauty!
That that wins Miss World back-to-back

Ìwàlewà
The light that shines on the inside
The ascension that determines your altitude
The inconcealable secret
That’s the sweet taste in your being
The beauty that never fades

Ìwàlewà
Faces wrinkle, flowers wither;
Parts decapitate, lives vanish
Beautiful minds never perish
Their ilk change our world
They are the power that mutilate vulgarity
Nay, scurrility.

Ìwàlewà
It’s your choice,
Choose pulchritude or attitude.
Soon, you shall be known with a voice
Voice of virtue or vice
And by that, you shall be remembered.

Ìwàlewà
Like rain soften the earth,
Sun sustains lives,
Moon lighten the nights,
Mountains peg the earth,
It is the life that live after its death.

Ìwàlewà
That’s the spice you need,
The flavour we breed
In this world of virtue’s kidnap
And vice, revamp
It’s called character.

Ìwàlewà
Give it up, never pick it up!
The murderer before death:
Bereavement of character.
Keep it up and never give it up!
Beautiful character
It never dies!

NB: “Ìwàlewà” is a Yoruba Maxim translated loosely as: Character is Beauty
