Flames - Poem by Onyeka Omenye

Every man is a flame
God the hands that lights us
Satan the lips that blow the wind that seeks to quench us
Our destiny
To stay aflame

We are all flames
Though from different races
Our mission
To ensure that in our desire
To stay flames
We keep as many flames aflame

Together as flames
Our vision burns brighter
Our mission clearer
And the lips that blow the wind
Will only spread us
Never quench us

As flames
We stay close to the hands that light us
And together we remain aflame
