Ifemelu, that was her name, Her highschool beau was Obinze. Carefree times were spent in Nigeria. Their bond was so strong in those days. Their bond, is it real now? Fifteen long years later Their bond, what does it mean now? Is it gone or even greater? First Ifemelu left for America First time in her life she felt black Not the first time she was the outsider First she struggled, her spirit grew slack To London Obinze went off Choices were few, he scrubbed toilets Later delivered new fridges Kicked out for papers not legit First to return was Obinze Licking his wounds, stood tall again With the right introduction, his world spun one-eighty, his life would begin again Many lives Ifemelu would live Choices changed with choice of boyfriend. She started blogging about race. Her voice, she would never lose it again. Searching her heart she was missing feelings that she wanted to be feeling. She knew she had to go home now. Would they still find each other appealing? Their bond, is it real now? Fifteen long years later Their bond, what does it mean now? Is it gone or even greater?
