This Is Me-By- Ibanga Emem

Do not blame me because I turn blue skies, purple
The world is bored of her color;
she barely looks at them anymore and smile
Don’t point fingers at me because I dream
I sing out loud, hopping on your silent streets
I just don’t want to die in the silence that has raped the world of her Innocence
I am a daydreamer, but at night I paint on my canvas, yellow, green and white
That in the dark nights, I let the colors glow as light
You have no dreams; maybe you just don’t believe in them anymore
Call me a daydreamer but that’s why you can’t still figure how my fantasy becomes your reality
Don’t paint on me your muddy shades of grey
I am one out of the thousand colors that catch your eye
I am the hue in your grey clouds
I Choose my colors as I want them
I’m not afraid to glow. –      Ibanga Emem

Hello Reader, I’m Emem and I’m just like you, creative, enthusiastic, passionate and of course, alive. I love to observe things around me but i now value writing them. Thanks to the wonderful people I met in the University of Benin, where I study  Fine Art and sing part time. Let’s say I have three more years ahead and more towards the future. Just so you know, I’ll keep my pen up!!!
