I walked the distance under the grey sky
Let the rain quieten my mind
The gumboots you gifted me
were meant to keep me dry
They were love to me

I knocked on your door
waited patiently
You opened eventually
and showed me contempt

I was so glad I came
I couldn’t run away from missing you
But I finally turned away from hatred

my steps were lightened
in my water filled gumboots
