Wind blow by Lazarus Shatipamba

The soul is stronger than its surroundings.

William James

Oh wind!
Why don’t you
Blow blow blow
As hard as you
know know know?

To make the trees dance
With joy from side to side

And to cool the fool
Who never learnt
To swim in the pool.

Oh wind!
Why don’t you
Just blow blow blow
As hard as you
know know know?

To make change move with an ease
Would appease even the breeze

Are you afraid?

To blow blow blow
The bright blue butterfly away
To a place filled with snow snow snow

If so
Then how nice of you
To show show show
Sympathy to an insect

Whereas for me
You did not show show show
Sympathy at all

When you did blow
Blow blow
The seeds i did sow
Sow sow
To a place where they
Won’t grow grow grow.
