Poemify Bookstore gift card

It is in me to spin tales
crafting them from dreams
and the promise of a smile
What better story,
than you?

You—
a mystery, inside
a riddle
wrapped in an enigma

You—
of the Nile
of the savannah
of the Volta

with fears hidden
underneath torn flesh
Black boy; black love
black sorrow

under the sheets

Your life painted, with
the footsteps of your ancestors
a kaleidoscope
of colours left behind

You—
who the sun cherishes,
her illuminations a caress
on darkened skin

You—
Who sifts the seas
and walks
among stars

I dare to speak to you,
of you, in you
with you

For what better story, than you?
