Brotherly Love — POEM

By Odimegwu Onwumere

When we were younger,
our parents allowed us to
visit our uncles and aunts and
other family members anytime,
anyhow we liked.

I was always in the residences of
my relations around Port Harcourt and Aba
to be precise.

There was the zest to see them
per minute.

Sadly, the ones following us
do not know where we are residing today.

That interest we had where our relations were
is not in them.

And their parents do not care like ours?

I wonder how the world around us
will be like in the next 20yrs.

Sadly sad, love is dead in the modern times.

Craving Heart -POEM

By Odimegwu Onwumere

We are beautiful and handsome
in our different ways.

We are married or not married
in our different ways.

We are schooled or not schooled
in our different ways…

But deep down our minds,
there is still a beauty or handsomeness
we are craving for.

There is a type of wife or husband
we are craving for.

There is a type of school
we are craving for…

Within the environment are all we need.

The power to look beyond sympathy
we shall find love because
love is spirit and it’s not far from us.
