A Sahara Dream

Tell me what you want

If my soul lets me, I will bring back life to you

Your eyes speak of an empty love

You cry and no one hears

That empty vase once brought me water

Now I’m healed

I can clearly hear your pain

I am here

I will quench your thirst

In Flesh and Vain

To be honest in my wisdom

To be bold in my strength

So give me that key you hide beneath that withered smile

Time is no mystery, just an answer we refuse to listen to

A Nigerian in Diaspora

I traveled to America to seek a better life

I had many reasons, but money was my number one priority

The only way forward in this place is the color green

I know that the road to good life demands hard work

I know where I came from

I will not forget my father’s last name

Don’t blame me for having survival instincts

Because “I no come yankee chop beans.”
