ONYEMACHI


Onyemachi
Three score and ten
Still ticking
Still kicking
Onyemachi
In whose hands was it
To say or know
The fate of this fruit
Onyemachi
The tender palm tree
Who knew better
Than the planter
Onyemachi
The planter’s preserved
From wild plants
Ready to choke
Onyemachi
The planter’s conserved
From whirlwind
Ready to uproot
Onyemachi
The tree that stood
Fruited and yielded
Still standing strong
Onyemachi
Three score and ten
Seen days and things
Seen life and living
Onyemchi
In no one hands
Lies destiny of another
Only Chionye decides
