Is it all in the hands of the wind?


Of all the winged seeds,

Falling from the tree,

Many are blown away

To the gutters of ignorance,

To the fires of greed,

To the deserts of prejudice;

And only a few happen to land

On the banks of the ever-flowing river.


The tree,

The wind

And our hopeful struggles.
