Treasure Island

Forever Homeless, Alien And A Refugee


Forever homeless, alien and a refugee
This is a strong feeling always haunting me
Nothing binds me for long and stops me from being a vagabond
What calls me yet always eludes me?
Was I born an alien or outsider?
The colorful, tragi-comic drama called life, leaves me cold
When very young I became old!
In the garden of this world something prevents me from being and insider.
Yet my emotions rise sharply but quickly sub side
Far away I watch this ebb and tide
All this while involved in constant value base action and projects
I remain a lonely heart, always left outside!
Am I deluding myself with 'Geeta's Anasakti' and dispassion?
Yet I am often swayed by passion
Balanced between passion and dispassion, insider- outsider, tears and laughter
I do have a streak of compassion.
A perpetual gypsy
I find any place a fleeting shelter
An inn for the night-halter
I am ready to leave this place called world fragile and silky!

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
