Atilola – The wrestle


I have bled… Yes, I am tired
I’ve got scars to show, nothing to be desired
Injuries yet to heal
But a trophy to reveal
To let the whole world know that… just like an apostle
I stayed and fought this battle
And because of that, I wrote this epistle
To tell you that… in the end, I was the victor in this wrestle

— Excerpt from The Wrestle: Spoken word by Atilola Moronfolu

Atilola performing at Chill and Relax, a monthly open mic performance poetry and soul music event. The event holds every 2nd Sunday of the month in Soluyi, Gbagada, Lagos.
