Three over packed shopping bags, hauled for miles
A speaker launched from podiums and a PA system,
These make strong arms to hold the world
Dancing with blisters in the eyes
Avoiding tears at all cost, pushing a bicycle
past racing river banks
these make strong feet, tone thighs
one minute ticks and the other follows
Long nights filled with questionings, endless waiting
for a word, a letter coming with the desert sand blowing from the east
these make a strong heart.

I am building stamina for the world, alone
excluding from all of it a feathery touch
An artistic hand, a brilliant mind
you, and end to the possibilities.
