Deny me not access to the woods
Do not hinder me from traversing the nations
Sun, sea, and sand fills me with joy
My name is Ovyay, the Traveling Poet.
Dust, rain, contrary winds can’t stop me
Roads, trains, planes are my comrades
More money, no money rumblings of the mind
It comes with being a wayfarer.
The dread of the known, awe of the unknown
Excitement mingled with curiosity
This is the makings of an adventurer
Heeding the call of the wild.
I have seen the mysterious beauty of the Aurora
I have gazed up at the grandeur of Mount Kilimanjaro
Kajuru Castle, Obudu mountains and Idanre hills are not strangers to the balls of the eye
The more I see, the more I want to stare at.
The good the bad and the ugly
Name them, I have met them all in my sojournings
I have made acquaintances and a few enemies
The worst is when you realize, it’s time to go homeward when you still want to venture forward.
When I am old and moldy
When my legs can no longer climb and ski
Whilst listening to the crackling fire and the crickets
From my armchair, I will climb Mount Everest.
