Voice to the Voiceless
Fortune Nwaiwu
I see the moon shining And stars lightning the earth For the earth is full of darkness .
As the sky is above the earth I feel there ’ s One who ’ s Also above everyone and everything- Man , gods and any other principalities and powers . My soul longs to see him For I know he has the power To break the bounds Of tradition and curses Hanging on me . ***

Should I Play the Drums ? ( Spoken by the Widower )
Young lady , I hear you weep like a weeping bird In this Island of grief . I see you sobbing in tears with a broken heart But I ’ m here in a secret moment To mend your soul . You are like a forbidden widow But I will fight for you and restore your hope Lost to the norms and traditions . If only you ' ll allow me Play the drums hanging on your chest
