Black Race by Donatus Oluchi Tombra #WPD2019

We aren’t a turn up world
With no postcode envy
We are a race of diamond
Held together by rigid covalent bond
So hard, that hate ain’t for us
We crave togetherness
And When attainable
All attacks we resist



For this year’s #WorldPoetryDay2019 I have decided to publish the works of emerging and already published poets on my blog. Today and on the next few days I will be posting poetry from different poets from all parts of the globe. The #WPD2019 is a harshtag which will be used for this poetry event.


This piece was written by Donatus Oluchi Tombra, a budding poet and student from Delta state of Nigeria. She lends her voice to her environment and what she feels.
