The transformation of speed (SASL poem)

Translation from South African Sign Language (SASL) into English

My head is very motivated,

And my chest is feeling very inspired,

The vibration releases 

Delightfully

I look at my hands

And I hold it towards my chest

It becomes a butterfly

Strangely

The butterfly becomes a bird

From the bird’s beak to an eagle’s  

The eagle’s wings flaps widely

The eagle is flying

It lands on a tree’s branch

The eagle’s wings slowly wraps himself

The wrapping hands becomes a book

At the same time I am writing 

I read it with my smile
