Let Me Be! - Poem by Ayomide Israel Atitebi

I am the tendrils
of a tuber
sprouting from your earth.
I, the forming zygote!


They say I have eaten
of the rotten apples
fetched from the devil's
bowels: Yet, only I
have seen your face! !


Just let me be-
a bard-
sucking at will,
from knowledge's long lost love! ! !

To Professor Wole Soyinka(Nobel Laureate) -my invisible tutor who taught me, an invisible student, poetic constructions!
