Biography of Victor Ekpo
Victor Ekpo is a graduate of Physics from the University of Calabar. He first tried to write poems in Secondary School, but never really wrote one until his poem 'On the Lane' in June 2005. One of his poems 'Let it Rain' was published by The Guardian (Newspaper) Life magazine of June 4.
He was editor-in-chief of Physics Press, University of Calabar.
His favourite book is The Roman Solution by Wallace Henley, a 400 page novel. The novel is about how a coal miner's strike crippled the American nation, starting with energy difficulties, alongside sympathy strikes from oil men. Thereafter, there were terrorist attempts, and an impending war, which drove President Pearsson into dictatorship against his wish. Just then, the President's strongest cabinet member is converted to Christianity, resigns, is incarcerated in a detention camp and finally...not telling - read a copy for yourself.
Among his favourite movies are Ever After; Music and Lyrics, and The Pursuit of Happyness.
His role model is Governor Donald Duke of Cross River State (1999-2007) . A man, Victor Ekpo says, is inspiring with a great 'Can-Do' attitude.
Victor has two elder brothers, Ekpo and Ebenezer, and two younger sisters, Glory and Blessing. And they are just five of them. He owns a pet dog, Winas.
Poemhunter is a great place to display his works and also learn from other poets.
Victor Ekpo Poems
Encompassing clothing, beauty and style It emanates from the mind Viewed physically And is an expression of an inner beauty.
On The Lane
Walking majestically on the lanes of love I found a beauty that surpassed the sun A beauty that shone from in and out And its beauty could easily be too bright to behold.
Reflections In You
As the moon reflects the light of the sun And the mirror the light in you So do you reflect the light of life
The World Spins On
The world continues in an ellipse Revolving slower, faster and still on With the same forces acting - Pulling and pushing in like fashion
If Only You Find
Find me a person With childhood innocence Youthful exuberance Adult enterprise
Friends, a strong shoulder they offer When awful emotions overwhelm you And tears are the best you can shed
Encompassing clothing, beauty and style
It emanates from the mind
And is an expression of an inner beauty.
Be it man or woman
Old or young
For God creating us unique
We can't but create our own version of it.
