Against All Odds(For Ugochi Erondu)


Thorns grew on my tongue
Voice gone
I am numb,my tongue tied.
I’m stuck at the point of unshed tears–I’m your lion.
But the memories will not give me rest.

The laughter we shared
The extra shrill to
“Emmyyyy” when you called my name

I loved you with a passion unknown
You had my back against all odds–
Always a kind word, always a wink to lift me

Now they tell me about heaven?
Consolatory reason to accept this?
I refuse to let you go,Ugom!

Our bond is eternal Ugochi,
I dare death and fate
And keep you here with me
You are immortal,
Bestriding the seven seas

(c) Oruh, August ’16
