I have always been a globe trotter,
It seemed I could not find
What I lost in the fire.
I found it all and still wasn’t happy.
Peace came as a visit from amathongo,
Airy and light, palpable even
We made a pact, to never leave each other’s side.
I am tired of standing on my toes. My purpose requires it.
