Freeing My Love

Written by: nana ayisha yakubu

FREEING MY LOVE
Poetry is flying fish
Over a waterfall
It is words stuck in
An ancient spells book
Kept under lock by time

I tap into the recesses of 
My brain
I find the key
To seek out the book and free
My love, poetry
I realize it doesn’t need the key
To be free

Just expression of it frees it
So here I am doing so
Letting it fly out of my mind
To fill the world’s emptiness.
