Figure it out yourself.

                                           I'LL WRITE YOU A POEM

I will write you a poem

my love,

A poem of your beauty to tell

The beauty of your black skin to spell


I will write a poem

for each strand of your hairs

Shy green hairs in harmattan's whirling wind

Those hairs that beautify your black skin


I will write a poem

of praise to each colour on your blouse

That green which connotes fertility

and the white which depicts your purity


I will write a poem

in honour of those designs on your skirt

That eagle,those horses and the black shield

That branch on the shield that has our thirst filled


I will write you a poem

I shall sing you a song;but when?

since my sobs and tears fluctuate its flow

These tears, will they ever go?


I will write you a poem

but this is not yet my poem

for these tears still blur my vision

These same tears that eclipse my mission


I will write you a poem

An apology for my promises

at your younger years

Those years of your sweat

the sweat of your toil

the toil of your might

the might of your sons

the sons of your womb


When my tesr-blurred eyes are clear again

I shall sing you my song, and then;

My love, Nigeria

I will write you my poem

I will write you a review, Sanctus, and it is like you
full of promise, a poet in the making
with hope, and strength
and creative insight.
Do not stop...
writing is your calling.
write on, young man
write on.
