Reachin’

Far back
Centuries ago
There I was
Sitting amongst my kin
A fire surrounding
Herbs dragged in
Stories of our past brought forward
Memories of our way recounted

I was alive
Burning with flames
Listening to drum beats
Wild beasts announcing the circle moon

I was alive
Breathing air
Growing with my people’s spirit
Up I stood and a dance ensued

An uprising, uprising
Rising with the fire
Souls lit with a smile
My people, all there in peace

  1. ………………………………………………..
    This is good
    I’m munching it as food
    giving my literary mind
    some nutrients of a kind

  2. I like, good job Uyiosa. I liked these two lines-“Herbs dragged in, stories of our past brought forward”.
