SWING By: Olusola Awojuyigbe



Under the shadows of the morning star,

with each end touching the inevitable start;

On a pole that has no pillars.

Rope-less pendulum pulley swing.


Woods and distance water roar,

travel then upon the moor

grassy plain, where worn with misery

clog on the barred patches and whining of a rope-less swing


My name is Shola a-Black; I sow;

a little farm set with thorns of bitter yam and sorrowful-sour vegetable plants,

And ever there the weeping wind; the kind land kept me,

for I thirty, from a little lad

have dwelt thereon, and known both pain and joy.


Life a rope-less pulley swing,

endless try putting out the ocean of tears

and after that the dark plague(death),

when I travelled on; turns again home.

in wings, I hope to see my potter eye to an eye, ask Him

when I leap down the swing.

Why did I drink from the bitter root of slavery?
