“where I Belong” (A Villanelle) - Poem by Munia Khan

That is the place where I belong
The place under the same blue sky
But I won’t be there for so long

Where birds can’t sing the same earth’s song
And worms smile when the soil gets dry
That is the place where I belong

Where without wind, storms come along
to tease the sun that stays nearby.
But I won’t be there for so long.

Where stars weep when the night is strong
On nothing the moon can rely
That is the place where I belong

Where right loves to echo with wrong
Still the truth never stops to vie
But I won’t be there for so long

Tide is there about to prolong
When the time keeps on asking ‘Why? ’
That is the place where I belong
But I won’t be there for so long
