Exodus by Uche Osita James

When the trickling rain the heavens so richly  give  the earth ceases.
When the soul's longing diminishes
and the heart can no longer endure,
 I shall return.

When the maize plants blooms no more and the beans stalk all dry up.
When the savage wind ravages the land
and takes all its fruits with it,
 I shall return.

When  vision departs the weary eyes .
When the market place is desolate
and the Traders all flee in fear,
 I shall return.
