The Strong Gale - Poem by Tony Adah

Let the raging winds loom and roam
So the trees know how firm
They plant their feet beneath the soil;
The birds that twitter and preen their plumes
And boast of great flight
Let the gales test their strength.
I have no hindrance
Walking in the wind
At worst I may tow the windward side
For the wind to bear me
In his wings.
Let the ravaging wind blow
Off our plumes so the world sees
What tangibles we got from greed
In the mandate we held in trust
For others.
Let it rage on
To un kindle our appetite
For the people's Commonwealth
Let them rage interminably
That the grains will sorted from chaffs
And my country cleans
By the waters of the storms.
