“Honest people are rare, Good people are rarer still…”


Otito inu sowon
Eeyan rere sowon boroboro
Nigbati mi o r’eeyan ba soro mo
Mo ko oroo mi da sikun
Dia fun Obaluwaye
Nigbati o njiya airi eni ba soro
Orunmila ni beeni loooto
Ifa ri’nu
Ile ri’ka
Eni to ba n se rere
Olorun mo

Honest people are rare
Good people are rarer still
When I see no reliable person to talk to again
I keep my thoughts within
This was the Ifa cast for Obaluwaye
When suffering from lack of good people to talk to
Orunmila declares that it is true
Ifa sees the mind
Ile, mother-earth sees the wicked
Those who do well
The Heavens know

  1. La oscuridad de la noche no es suficiente para albergar el mal.

    Aboru, aboye.
