My Roots - Poem by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

My roots hold sway
and burrow diligently through the
black bowels of a proud hemisphere whose
roots hold firmly to the sands of time.

My roots,
inveterate, unfettered umbilical,
patented by God and warmed by sun...

I regain strength
by the potency of your mid-rib
and have chosen sensual paths
through your protean vagaries.
