we Like You By Rene Philombe (translator Samuel C. Enunwa) ~ Naija Poets
I've knocked your door
I've knocked your heart
for a worm sleep
for warmth
why ignore me?
Open up, my brother!...

Why ask me
whether I'm an African
whether I'm an American
whether I'm an Asian
whether I'm European?
Open up, my brother!...

I'm not black
I'm not red
I'm not yellow
I'm not white
of course, I'm not that man;
Open up, my brother!...

Open up your door
Open up your heart
for I'm a human
like you!

(c) Rene Philombe (a french poet)
