From what depth do you draw the magic words
To say to a soul burnt
What medical prowess do you procure
To heal a body hurt?
How do you tell a child to look to the hill
From whence help comes
When the valley offers solace
Whispering "you're not alone"?
Mother, it was from your lips I first heard
The longings of the heart
From your eyes, I learnt that
The world was hard.
As your words danced before my face
I knew the day had come, for
To take the bull by the horns
I must unleash the tiger.
But mother, I failed to dance
To the tune of the marketplace
Now my wares are left unsold
To whom do I sing this song of woe?
My back is bent, failure beckons
Her voice, the lulls of a thousand waters
And like other days, my heart beats with its rhythm
But my feet refused to dance along.
