30, a collection of poems by Jaachi Anyatonwu banner


What I am is exactly what You see

I come on my knees
with ruffled feathers and broken wings
knocked off the sky by boisterous winds,
teach me to fly and never come back down.

I come on my knees
shaken from the inside out
broken and knocked out,
teach me to lift my feet above the ground.

I come on my knees
with Marah on my lips
and gall in my bloodstreams,
teach me to sing the song of victory.

What I become is by Your grace.
