I thank you for the ability to be here to build.
Eshu Elegbara! Arbiter of Fortune and Misfortune!
I thank you for ALL that has happened to bring me to this moment.
Eshu Elegbara! Who sees all that is done and undone!
Please do not undo me.
Please do not allow me to be undone.
Let all misfortune and and calamity That my enemies wish upon me Fall upon them Instead of me.
Let all ill will Towards those I love Be repelled from all directions Sides, below, above.
Now I ask that you open the way to Ogun.
Onile Ogun! He who embodies the Earth of which I am made!
I thank you for the wealth that is my material self.
May my lips and my fingers produce only truth here.
If I am in error, please correct me with haste.
Ashe! Ashe! Ashe!
