The Young Are To Be Respected By The Elders
After all the Orisa failed in bringing Oggun back to the kingdom from his retreat in the forest. Oshun “Yalorde” goes to her parents Alafin ( palace) to ask her father permission to bring Oggun back . Her petition is met with great skepticism and sarcasm from the other elder Orisa who tried before her. because they did not believe that she would succeed where they had failed. Oshun knew she she could bring Oggun to the kingdom she only needed her fathers consent . Obatala knowing his daughter was very capable of accomplishing what the others could not said to her ” If you want to go to the forest to where your brother is , you have my permission”. The following day Oshun left her Ile with her container of Onyi (honey) and went on her way deep into the forest looking for Oggun, who did not want to found or disturbed. Once she arrived at Oggun’s ile she started singing flirtatiously into the wood. ONI O BONBO SOLO YU BABA SOLO YU BABA SOLO YU ONI OBANBO CARERE BABA SOLO U BABA SOLO YU BABA **I am the Queen of honey and my honey is irresistable Oggun heard this voice singing and became angry and peered from his hiding place to see who had come to disturb him and offer him Orin (song) . When he saw it was Yalorde singing to him even though he was angry , he could see her beauty.Oggun had felt the desire to have Oshun more than once, and when he came closer to her , she tenderly smeared Oyin on his lips . Time had come to a still for Oggun and his anger and misery fleeted his muscular body. Oshun dominated his senses with the sweet temptation of kindness and not by force .Oggun had become mesmerized by the Oyin of his sister and started to follow her from the forest .The young where to be respected by their elders.What a surprise in the kingdom when Oshun arrived at her parents house with Oggun in tow.This is the first time that Oshun saves the kingdom, Thus earning the respect of the older Orisa. They start to respect her more as a great Queen Because she saved the kingdom from hunger.
