Featured Poem written by Joan Toluwani Amos ©
To the one with whom I share so many things in common
From my height, my nails, my sizes- down to shoe size
To you, I sing these lines.
From the very beginning, before my very beginning
The Lord’s offer you accepted
To house my great destiny in you
That part of you, so delicate, yet precious
Where we shared one heart, ate one meal for nine months
Nurturing me you did
From the days I crawled to the days I walked
Still walking and now you tell me I can fly
Constantly your soothing words aid in adjusting my wings to soar high above reproach
To soar high above failure
“As far as your eyes can see, T you can possess it”
These words re-echo daily through my ear drums
Its sound waves descend deep down into the chambers of my heart
Causing it to beat stronger with so much reserve of joy and fresh strength
Today, I write to you, to express just one line of excitement
“Mama, Look, I’m Flying!”
