I am delightful Day Soe

I can draw my happiness with my thoughts
when I’m cheerful

I can dance when I’m filled with desire
like a leaf blowing away in the air

I dip-dive in the water
like a dolphin swimming to greatness

I drive my feelings on the edge of my tongue
to express myself

I listen to my thoughts
as they direct me to my desire

I am delightful Day Soe
