Nduka Victoria Chinwendu Bio

Nduka Victoria is an enthusiast of African culture, particularly afro hair, music and literature. On the days when she’s motivated, she writes short stories and poetry that elicit strong emotions. She’s a recent graduate of Chemical Engineering but do not ask her about thermodynamics or bubble point. She dances well too. In her head.

Surrender
The days are past when I was dour

When things were sweet and sometimes sour

When I had a dozen million or just four

Now be I rich or be I poor

My heart remains an open door

On hinges of compromise I flutter

With each push I yield and not clutter
On your whim I choose to die or live

All I have and am I give

I pour my last drop into your overflowing hive

That you may be to me

What to you I couldn’t be

I lock up my free will and hand you the key

To this temple you have become a Bey
Let the snap of your fingers be

my morning cue

Let the nod of your head decide my daily due

Do not weep for me for I feel no rue

That I have no mind of my own I do not care a sou

My sole purpose is to live only for you

Into your hand I my soul render

From now till eternity in unconditional surrender
Nduka Victoria Chinwendu
