Shehu Mubarak Sulaiman--Poetry

Shehu Mubarak Sulaiman

I AM NORTH

I am North

I run from the far Sahara 

through the Sahelian Kano 

to the fertile lands of Benue 

 

 

ALAMAJIRI (STOLEN BOYHOOD)

I rise at aurora,

to roam and wander,

foraging for food and shade,

predator, in search of a prey

AFRICAN WOMAN

I am the waters of Volta,

The mountains of Mambilla

I am the winds of Niamey

The deep valleys of Congo
