Hatmattan - A season of hope

Gather all you can
Even through the harmattan 
Oh It's annoying hay fever!
And the cracked lips it serves

Cough all you may
Sneeze it all out
For it's only an ephemeral reminder
Of the fortitude we have within

That we get bent somehow
Maybe cracked
By the elements of life
But never broken

So shiver not
Hang in there
Eyes on the skies, chest out
It's only for a season

Breathe deep
And suit up
Take the giant strides anyways
Through the fog

Soon you'll find you've garnered
Even through the apparent cracks
And the broken system
Strength immeasurable

Ineffable joy and clarity
That it was never a destination
But a story of growth and purpose
One of a bright and beautiful people 

Too dazed by their own light
To break through the systemic fog
Clouding the apparent vision
Of the designer's perfect circus of life.
