Tolani Olawore

If I’m given a chance to live
Untethered and free
I’ll make melody with the birds at sunset
Lend my strength to earth
I’ll make my home in the sky
Hungrily feed off the laughter of wind
Tell jokes to the streams
And hear them gurgle with mirth
Break the sky in two
With streaks of white fire
Wreak havoc with my brother the storm
I’ll take lessons from the oceans
And birth entire civilizations
I’ll start a revolution
Rule for a day and give it all away
Maybe I’ll be careless for a while
And if death be the price I pay
Then it only means she found me first
I was running to her anyway

Spread the love
