When I Was An Alien - Poem by Saul McCandless

I appreciated my home
When I was an alien
No one I knew was known

When I was alien
Judas seemed so far away
When I was an alien
A light year seemed a day

When I was an alien
Tyrants wanted to be friends
When I was an alien
Old men planned my end

When I was an alien
Children took my hand
When I was an alien
The world was a grain of sand.
