A Place for Me

To walk on wave-kissed sand tasting moonlight

Dance through sunbeams with wild grass underfoot

To listen as the bamboo whisper legends

and ancient tree trunks foretell our stories


I will learn the travels of our rivers

discover unseen colours of a rainbow

I must make my own way across this Earth

and become worthy of the secrets of her oceans


I’ll be damned if I curl up in a shell

close myself off so life’s out of reach

I am too wild, too loud, too much, too all

to settle for being less than free.
