Outlander - Poem by Sneha Murali

Whilst doing my dance up in the clouds
I slipped and fell, earthbound i got lost
I followed the song of several birds
I followed the scent of several wild flowers
As I oscillated between earth and the sky
I lost all my heavenly powers
I heard the sound of my sky father say
''You belong in earth, and there you will stay''
So stuck in this land where everything seemed grotesque
I danced and danced, longing to go back home
But the longer I stayed, the more I loved it here
Earth was unruly, but still very dear
I discovered emotions I never knew existed
And treaded dark waters never before tested
My heart longed to go back home
But in me, love for earth had finally grown
As I look around my companions who had me anoint
I feel perhaps even they must have slipped
From a cloud at some point.
