Wish I was a bird, 
would flap my wings, 
and touch the skies

Wish I could swim,
would embrace the sea's depth 
and feel her rippling waves 

Wish I could sing 
with glitz, glam and bling,
would wing and sing songs of love

Wish I could turn back hands of rhythms 
to when pampered in mannered culture, 
would speak how baby-nurtured I was treated

I wish I could roll back all of time
to when I was bubbling nine… 
A time, so truly fine.



Helen Gyigya, Makurdi, Benus State, Nigeria
