An excerpt from ‘Where the Lotus Grows’ by Oyinkansola A. Ogunyinka

“Endless tears and fears, Cold’s hands clutch hearts

We leaped and danced together, till we didn’t

I’ll hide my pain, and let the dead mourn theirs

Shaking off tragedy’s cloak, of old stitches and healed wounds

I’ll come to you, whole again; from the mud I’ll bloom.”
