Bianca! Excerpts From The Book ‘Mnemonic Verses’ a Poem Dedicated To Bianca Ojukwu, By Uchendu Precious Onuoha

The heavens bestowed you
with rectitude.
You were created in heaven and
delivered on earth.
The earth was lucky to have you.
You wore a crown of
beauty from heaven.
A great daughter of the universe.
You were sown as the sowers’ seed,
and you fell on a good soil.

Born and raised by the rich
and a king.
Loved and was loved by a hero,
yet you wore grace and humility
like a cloth.

You wake up from sleep early,
having a mind of your own.
Defying all odds and opinions of men.
You took steps contrary
to many expectations,
but that which suited you most,
and charted a path for yourself.

Like your hero, you have
The same mindsets.
You changed general norms.
In the beginning,
a father’s name and identity
overshadows his children.
But your case was different.
Rather than are you the daughter of…
Yours was, are you the father of …
In marriage, the God of fertility
blessed you with a double portion.

You have all it takes to tower
above the daughters of Eve.
You were ordained
a star from creation.
You are like a gold fish,
and your presence in
the water cannot be hidden.
You are like a northern star,
whose resting qualities in
the firmament cannot be removed.

You are the star of your generation,
shining the light for others to follow.
Great Igbo Queen, Queen of Nigeria.
Great daughter of Africa,
and mother of a nation.
Because you were born,
you have a mission to be here
