The sun shone brilliantly today,
And beat heavily on me,
It scorched my skin and made my
Sweat pores cry.
The wind blew dust in my face
And tousled my well set hair
My tear duct bled from the smoke
Emitted from passing vehicles.
My legs ache,
Not as much as my heart
And my head is heavy.
The skies were blue today and complemented the
Hue of yellow of the brilliant sun
The canvass of my handkerchief is splashed with colors
From the mixture of sweat, dust and mascara
I smiled as my eyes followed the mating dance of two chickens
Right over by the dunghill close to my house
The green of the grass growing by the wayside
Complemented the brown of the earth.
I stand naked in the bathroom
And feel the tension of the day drain down the sink
As the water hit me
I feel because I live
I am alive
