The Only Power I Know - Poem by Gbolagade Taiwo

The power that made a sea to be a walking path for men
The power that turned water to blood
The power that brought fire on the grass and the grass never got burnt
That is the only magic I know
The power that brought water from the rock
The power that rained manna for years
The power that washed cloths without removing it from the wearers for years
That is the only magic I know
The power that saved in the battle
The power that woke up after three days in the camp of death
The power that brought life to the souls that were dead
That is the only magic I know
No other magic than the magic,
Of the one who made a woman conceived without seeing her man
The power that stand on the covenant
The power that gave when there was nothing
That is the only magic I know
The power of the Almighty God!
