BROTHERS OF THE SKY: Poem by Lanaire Aderemi
Blue as the sky, dark as the night,

Rare as the clouds in darkness and stars in light;

We felt as free as the fabrics made of cotton,

Sewn with golden threads that shone in two metallic buttons;

The sky was foreign to our eyes

Yet aware of our homeland’s bed of lies;

We met in debris, dirt and dust,

Costumed men – debonair – in front of cars soon to rust;
Saraswati would be proud for we shared concordant love

Of art and knowledge only obtainable above;

We sang harmonious tunes rewriting our history,

For one day the world will unravel the mystery of our authenticity;
We sat within and without talking about our dreams,

Then we shook hands in hope of us working as a team;

A promise to not lose our very souls to the earth,

So the sky sang a song for the brothers in the celebration of their new birth.
