Nostalgia- Song Of The Expatriate

Rating: 4.1
I might be like any other expatriate, desirous of their homeland
upon my country's soil fervently wishing to stand
I can't help feeling profusely foreigner
in this highly foreign land
I'd give anything to go back, say even be a mariner
for there's an ocean to cross before familiar sand.

An ocean with dear motherland's name
greets me all the way here with tantalizing lure
tiring me of nostalgia's seemingly endless game
reminding the distance between the shores is galore!

Beautiful poem Zanyub. You have expressed very beautifully the pain and anguish you feel at foreign land. You feel alienated especially when you goto other place than homeland. Very soon we feel nostalgia of going home sweet home. Beautiful presentation and I can feel each words you portrayed very well. Loved it.

Pain and anguish of an expatriate well expressed. I can very well relate with this poem as a kashmiri pandit. Very touching indeed.

A genuine stream of thought, flowing from an expatriate! A longing for homeland and its familiar surroundings is there embedded in everyman's psche! The twist at the end.... I liked much! If our 'individual brand' is accepted and respected, I think, every where we feel at home! Great write, Zaynub!

It's an intense write showing the urge to go back to motherland and to recognize oneself after connecting with the mother tongue and soil what is missing in foreign. A nice realization of the root itself..... Loved it.
