I AM BLACK

By Haruna Birniwa, Jigawa State of Nigeria.

I am black, marry that bunches grasses

That dwell within my head,

They are silk, dense and romantic.

 

I am black, marry that energetic chest

It can accommodate your feelings and

Say bye to all your sorrows.

 

I am black, marry that comrade’s hand

It will quench your thirst with different dishes

And make you up with African green flowers.

 

“You are black.” She said and continues

“And I love this virgin land.” Then

Reply comes from me “I AM BLACK!”
