POETREE by Ngozi Olivia Osuoha

My pen is mighty
Mightier than the sword,
My ink is a warrior
The goddess of word.

My pen is life
Living in hearts
My ink is sharper than knife
Capturing more than arts.

My words are forces
Within time and tide,
My words are horses
Speeding far and wide,
With strength and breath
Across lands and bands.

A tree of words
In diverse worlds
A tree of messages
On cords of the universe.

My pen is my armour
I am the Knight
I win the fight
And wear the glamour.

My sword is silver
My word is golden
My mission is diamond
Hence, I plant a poetree.
