Off From Our Lands! Poem by Siddartha Montik

Off From Our Lands!

Rating: 4.5

know not why we ran away from home lands,
know not how to fit in the new lands!

in the depths of our hearts still there must be a beat,
that no one cares to understand or to repeat it!

it is only we feel the pain of it all,
yet.. it is all hard to find some one to make it full-fill!

we are lost nomads from home lands off a cause for sure,
but surely were not on our way to conquer!

still holding on those lost strands of that culture,
we sure have so much to offer in all this mixture!

give us a little space too here, of a life,
for we never really make someone unsafe!

seems like in the very nature of our ancestral culture,
just to make sure that every life gets it's nurture!

(in respect to Roma and their history)

Loved the subdued plea: very poignant, all lines charged with deep emotion. Wish I could open up like that and let emotions pour out when I write a poem, but I'm more like a fortress, content with merely hurling little snippets of cerebral musings over the battlements.
