For Yetunde Morenikeji 

I can tell, so tell
your hands are weary from holding
swords that it cannot
hold the pen
to write your story
Fret no more for I
found all that’s unwritten
in a manuscript with your name
not on papyrus, parchment nor papers
but upon hearts of men
told by their tears
when I’m asked
“Do angels have scars, for we saw one that led us from the valleys?”
– Martins Deep
