Read the heart-warming piece below:

Shoeless Ijaw boy

Dragged by fate

To power’s corridor?

Referred to as a toy

Ravaged by hate

Weaklings’ ambassador?

Shoeless

Clueless

Yet you forge ahead.

*Idi egwu!

Like an Olympic champion

You shot up like thunderbolt

From dark oblivion

With the brute strength of a cow’s

Cloven hooves

You pummelled puppetry

Into the tarmac of impotence

Hence, the raving crave to attenuate you

Shoeless

Clueless

Yet you forge ahead.

*Idi egwu!

Attune to the dictator’s barrel

They sneer at your democrat’s apparel

You that rained like needles

Of water

And stitched the fragile fragments

Of the north and south.

Shoeless

Clueless

Yet you forge ahead.

*Idi egwu!

Like a stubborn Iroko

Your reputation fingers the navel

Of the sky

Evergreen denizen of the rain forest

Who is never scratched by the season...

Like the voice of water falls

You shall rain

Till you percolate into a mighty

Ocean

From whence aspirants shall drink

The water that quenches

The thirst of

Violence.

Burnt offering on the altar of unity...

Shoeless

Clueless

Yet you forge ahead.

*Idi egwu!

Idi egwu is an Igbo word meaning "you're wonderful"
