A Love Poem from Valentine Okolo

Valentine Okolo, whose poetry echoes the voices of the silenced and oppressed, also speaks of love in its purest form. His poem “Storm” may be interpreted as a strong love poem, a voice of a man speaking of the freedom he sees in his woman. It can also be seen as a gender equality poem that gives women the room to be whatever they choose to be. Read and see for yourself. The poem is from his book: I Will Be Silent.
