30, a collection of poems by Jaachi Anyatonwu banner
Be You. That’s What You’re Born To Do

It throws back all it receives
with a glow:
Be like your mirror.

It stays true to itself
in days bright and dreary nights:
Be like your shadow.

It takes humans to heaven and back
an assurance that life’s worth the living:
Be like a moan

You’re not just a boy, son
you’re the light of dawn
crawling over mountain tops

Be you,
for that’s what you’re born to do
