Wild and free

I am a woman who runs with her dog

I am clothed and civilized

I also belong to a tribe

Of women

Who run with the wolves

We are naked and wild

We accept all that we are

Awakened to the wonder

Of being alive

We sweat

We bleed

Grow our hair

Go bare feet

Naturally and unshamable

Free as the wind


We know things…

These we learnt from

Sweat and blood

Dust, ashes and mud

The earth and our bodies

Have stories to tell

Of cycles and rhythms

And a life lived well

    Dankie Thia. Dis ‘n oorwinningslied asook ‘n loflied aan die lewe self
