i know myself Poem by umoh cyril


i know myself
i know i'm black
i know i'm short
i know i'm intelligent
i know i'm in love
i know what i want
i know i'm a legend
i know i was gonna make it
i know i'm an african
i know i love her
i know when i'm sad
i still remember how to dance salsa
i know when i'm hungry
i know when i'm wanting
i know when they are waving
i remember she is my sister
i know she is my mother
i still remember she is my best friend
i remember i love to eat
but how do i know my name when i'm batling with amnesia, but as they say love conquers all.
