The poem which is a combination of English and his native Igbo language (Ohafia) in Abia State, South East Nigeria he said is in line with this year’s theme which encouraged poets to write in their mother tongues.

With the title, “Dark is My Skin” the poem expresses the fact that we are created by the same God no matter the colour of our skin or the tongue we speak.

By Stanley MBA

Dark is my skin
White is my heart
Africa is my home
Abia is my hood
Ohafia is my blood.

God is Chim
Odu nde ubi eje ikpokporo
Ya bulia oche dowo ya ome kpokoro
Owu ngu metu oba, oba mea kpokoro

Oya wu Oji oku eri aja
Ya mere gi ife ga agba ama

Omagi onye ocha eye onye ojiri
Owu nna ni onye ocha yara onye ojiri

Chim is God
God to the Dark Skin
God to the white Skin

Dark is my skin 
White is my heart
