Three Poems by Ngozi Olivia Osuoha

The Muse of My Ink

The muse of my ink
Is not tight but loose,
Hence, it flies across
To keep all abreast.

The muse of my ink
Searches for thorn
In every blink
To weave up a feast.

The muse of my ink
Plants love in hearts
To cleanse pains
And shame the beast.

The muse of my ink
Befriends the poor,
To open wide their door
And be their guest.


A hot world full of hurt
A harsh world filled with marsh
Swampy, bomby and shabby
Lonely, dreary and weary,
Kindness could bring us happiness.

A cold world of worthless gold
A sold world of stolen fold
A raw world of burning war,
A bar world with bloody law
Troubled, scary and blurry
Kindness could give us fairness.

Injustice, prejudice and malice
Rumours, despiration, conspiracy
Slavery, starvation and racism
Kindness could heal our brokenness.

The kind, is not blind,
Because the mind can still find
Treasures in this whirlwind.

Dear Woman

The bride of bravery
The queen of quest
The celebrity of courage
The victor of virtue
The elephant of elegance
The sister of stardom
The model of machine
The note of nut
The nugget of news,
Woman, a beauty to behold.

The mast of information
The antenna of contacts
The missionary of social media
The gem of great treasure
The child of mild pleasure
The daughter without measure,
Amiable and adorable
Charming and charging
Vast and versatile,
Woman, brilliance unadulterated.
