Instead of Saying it Everyday by Agnieszka Wiktorowska-Chmielewska

So you can understand its power, I will take you into Africa.
on the biggest baobab I will emboss he who makes
that in the darkness instead of a knife, another gate opens.
and when we come back there years later
as birds or emerald-winged dragonflies,
the old men under the tree will tell their grandchildren
about whites who have been dancing in the sunshine.
