Dream Two: Language

Her Second Dream to Humanity: Language

Her Language

Strange echoes,

Measuring;

The silence in her sound

Strange echoes,

Measuring;

The sun in her smile

Strange echoes,

Measuring;

The course of her being

Her first words,

Her first thoughts,

Her mother’s chatters,

I bu ebube

Onye na anochi

Na enye oku

Olu umu mma du

Onye ji oku anyi name fu uzo

 

The definition of her being,

Egwuoma,

Measuring;

She observed,

Her own voice forming,

Her difference

This is the story of a small town girl’s language

Her difference,

Her origin and race
