Poems by Akimana Divine
EAUTY OF POETRY
There is something about poetry that arouses my soul, hardens my footing.
There is something about poetry that
Gives me stomach butterflies.
There is something about poetry that intrigues my curiosity.
There is something about poetry that tightens my hand and awakens my creativity.
There is something about African poetesses that smoothens my melanin,
Leaves my hands dripping ink, dresses me boldness, Buries my fear, burns my shyness.
REAM LITTLE GIRL
Let the toddler girl in you dream woman.
Let your mind race bolt, become the president, own that publishing house.
Let the little girl go wild in her sweet
Dreams, let her be on every magazine cover, Michelle Obama was once just a dreamer too.
Fly little dreamer, go pave our future.
Don’t dry out yet.
Worry not if you chock on ocean dreams
Because you gonna sip on success soon.
A little girl from Chicago dreamt, now you are writing about her.
She dreamt and she became the First Lady of the world.
Dream little girl, dream divine.
