To claim that we’ve won

Or stop to smell the flowers

Before the journey is done

We can chase the big things

While life passes by

Or resurrect our childhood

Enough to lift us up high

We can seek happiness without

And get lost in ‘things’

Or stop for a deep breath

Realising it’s all within

We can bleat at life

And fall deep into its pit

Or watch the sun rise

And be glad that it did

And Mother Earth makes her heart beat

Juanita’s hair is long and wild

She has a Zulu inner child

She’s orange flame and earthy red

She lives her heart, ignores her head

The limitations of the mind

Are useless to the…
