Endless Journey!


Endless Journey!

By Leoul Mekonen: written for homeless immigrants

As the day turns to night,
And the night turns to day
As days make weeks and months
Months again make more years
I find myself restless
My destination is unknown
My journey is endless!

I wander alone in a white field
Covered by the blue sky
I don’t know where I belong to
I ask my self, who am I?

I wander alone in a white field
Packing my heavy baggage
I don’t lift my head up high
Hopelessness is thick cloud
There won’t be bright day
The cloud shattered the blue sky!

The invisible heavy burdens
Worries, thoughts, hopelessness
Feeling pushed and spited
not knowing what comes next
Time becomes meaningless
Being different is a curse!

Seeking to unload my burden
looking for a safe place
I wander alone under the cloud
“They” think I am by nature”nomad”
But let me tell you what I feel
I am a boat on a dry land!

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
