Treasure Island

Victoria Nunoo


My Husband, The Father of My Children


I landed down
I dropped down to
My native soil
A tradition met
An initiative into womanhood
I am a woman
And a man I must choose
Norms speaks not of any man
But "The man"
The real man
Is there a man in every man?
Not in the least
The man is my life's side warrior
My life's second guard
He must remain the protector of my eggs
This man I search
Amongst all men
He stands tall
With none coming first
But me, his woman
This man must have a woman in him
The side that gives him compassion
A feminine sense of love
That man I seek
He is the real man
My husband, the father of my children!

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
