Hymn to Self

Make me a mirror in thy ancestral image

And still my Core with titanium and rage

Make me fearless and fierce

But cautious in grace

Cave my heart from the willow 

And my bark trench deep in meadow

Let me see through the eyes of Argus And let Venus have its Path

As twilight flicker are rare 

So its thy eternal form

Clothed in wear and tear

Glory in thy humble incarnation

And tussle in thy daily yearns 

Light is Light even in the dark.

Sonnet written by Temidayo Nwabueze
