I am learning

a poem by Nissi KAY, Nigeria

I'M LEARNING


...I'm learning that this body
Is not a pistol nor a shotgun
...I'm learning that a man
Is not defined by what he can destroy
...I'm learning that a person
Who only knows how to fight
Can only communicate in violence
...i'm learning that the difference
Between a garden and a graveyard
Is what you decide to put in the ground
...Thus, this is a tutorial session
I don't intend quitting anytime soon
