AWENI By Bada Yusuf Amoo

Written by Editor

Aweni, Your name cycled my existence

As water cycled the Island

With its tale of a strong skin and soul

And the narrative of your dark skin

Aweni, I am enjoined to obey your call

Like a soldier to its country

Concerned and noble, under golden plight

Your brightness is too clear to ignore

Aweni, your smile crowned all side of life

And your brownness lights all hopes

Each of your smiles is a pixel of pawn Of hope, fortunes and all that give courage
