THE UNKNOWN VOICE

I am the unknown voice
roasting my plea
in a burning fire
with my hands
soaked with the blood
of my dying land.

I am the unknown voice
hanging under a tree
with burdens of voices
in my head
writing my dreams
on sabotaged slates

I am the unknown voice
in the chalet of silence
listening to the symphony
of weary dreams
that bid farewell to nothing

I am the unknown voice
crossing Ikogosi waterfall
to the Idanre hills
where my immortality
is naked to the smokes
of dying whispers.

I am, yes I am!
the illustrious son
of this land of thorns.
