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 


I look at my hands

And I hold it towards my chest

It becomes a butterfly


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
