Where The Wind Blows

from by The Dandelion War

lyrics

i stand divided. while the winds of opportunity. blow in all directions. and my heart’s flag. waves with sheer determination. my home is here. where hardship is a ghost that haunts us all. my home is here. where hard work sometimes isn’t enough. my home is here. where far too many families struggle just to survive. oh this is a city of forgotten angles. a city where wind hardly ever blows. so step into my body for a day. to see the world through my eyes. to feel my pain. and with this scarce wind sending me in every direction. i must swiftly decide where to go. but my mestizo heart is rooted in this ancient soil, cared for by my mother’s sweat from toil; so where will this wind take me? will it allow me to remain loyal to the land that’s taught me all i know?
