In A Foreign Land - Poem by Victor Bamisaye

I used to be a landholder
But now a leaseholder
Once I made rules
But now I obey rules
All because I am in a foreign land

Reminder of those days under my roof
Nothing to me was aloof
And nobody to shrink from
And my actions, always approved
But here is a foreign land

In those days I felt love
With every of my problems solved
With beams of smile, I look up above
But these feelings seems dissolved
Since I am in a foreign land

Restriction is an understatement
Desires are cut short
Only needs comes forth
The best is all of a sort
For this is a foreign land

I remember my home
The constitutes of my chromosomes
The anticipation on my name
The service I owe my fatherland
But I’m still in a foreign land

But I’m here to prove a point
That determination drives success
There is no victory without war
And I can conquer against all odds
Even though I’m in a foreign land
