by Q Malewezi


I  can be anything

I can have everything

I can wish for the impossible

by pondering the unthinkable


I will claim the sun

and all its shine

I will harvest all its light

I will stand in wait for its rise


I will grow wings

and ride the wind

My imagination will propel my thoughts

far and beyond

Reducing this earth to just a blue dot


I will live my dream

I will light my shine

I will ride my wind

Just one class at a time
