Instead of Saying it Everyday by Agnieszka Wiktorowska-Chmielewska

 

 

So you can understand its power, I will take you into Africa.

on the biggest baobab I will emboss he who makes

that in the darkness instead of a knife, another gate opens.

and when we come back there years later

as birds or emerald-winged dragonflies,

the old men under the tree will tell their grandchildren

about whites who have been dancing in the sunshine.
