When I Am Inspired to Write


I hear one say:
This land, the trees and the fruits
belong to me,
I inherit these from my ancestor
I hear another say:
No, this land, the trees and the fruits
belong to the earth
and therefore to everyone


Then I am inspired to write!

I hear one say:
The soil has potential
I have knowledge for greater crop
And the entire harvest will be yours
I hear another say:
No matter what it's worth,
Tilled or left barren,
You can't touch a speck of it

Then I am inspired to write!

I hear one say:
We have some time
but time will not wait
I hear another say:
Mind your business
and do not waste my time

Then I am inspired to write!
