Ambrosia Ambrosia


Who Is Our Own and Who Is A Foreigner?


Strange things happen in life!
Our own people betray us,
Just like autoantibodies,
Leaving us auto immune diseased,
Failure of body’s self recognition!

Same time outsiders embrace us,
Just like grafted foreign tissue!
Strange yet beautiful things do happen!
Our own gets rejected and
Foreigner feels like our own.
