Back To Our Root - Poem by Enyinwa Okechukwu Enyinwa

we are going back to our
root to start from where
our ancestor stopped. We
have come to make the
motherland best amoung
it's counterparts, we are
back to our root i remember
many years ago we wonder
when we shall step our foot
in Africa? but right now it is
one hour different, inside
ship in the deep blue sea
full of lust to step our foot
on the land full of honey
and precious creatures.
We are back to Africa after
many years away from home.
there in far west been deny
our rights.

    Motherland is the only refuge in this malicious world. Read my poem “The Door Of No Return”, it’s about Africa. Best Wishes.
