A tree is known by its fruit, not the roots. In the Efik communities, we sing and dance when we are happy and when we are sad. There are seasonal, celebratory, occupational and occasional songs and dances, reflecting the whole gamut of existence as appreciated within our cosmology. It is also through these songs and dances that we preserve, enhance, reflect, consolidate and propagate our feelings and way of life. Our culture. My Song (And other Poems) is Orok Otu Duke's latest collection of anecdotal poems. It is a kaleidoscope of emotions. Be my guest, please.
