I search for a memory
Deep inside the words “Dear Diary”
A moment in history
So Dark, that these pages turned yellow
And it’s ink, vanished.
Untangling my wrecked soul,
Filling my crevices with milk
Inflating my lungs
with this castle called freedom,
Where I breathe fresh air
Amidst all foul.

To reminisce,￼ grow, and conquer
sunrises in this forever sky.
To Learn to Unlearn
Our lives beyond these lies
shall be the story,
My blighted soul recites.
The Sunset hits like a dry martini
Slow and Vibrant,
Wrapping itself inside the dark skies
All eyes glisten during moonrise
For young lovers unison
Kiss looking at the waning moon.

Let’s traverse into my memory,
And recreate moments to cherish
And let it resonate with hope
My tainted Lips utter
This too shall Pass
We are the people of god
Who can Defy us?
For I am the Captain of my ship
And the Master of My soul.
(Quoted from the poems Invictus and Odunfa Noel)
