So Far Away From Home - Poem by Moth Harris

The hour glass lets a few grains pass
On the few last hours in my past
Where I gasped in the vast ocean
I grasped your hand and you asked

'Why've you been here so long,
If you've felt so wrong
Hidden away? '

A few hours went by as the sun flew high
There was just me and my thoughts that I'd die
Just another lie to my surprise
That I was believing through jaded eyes

'Why've you been here so long,
If you've felt so wrong,
Hidden so far away from home
Hidden and so alone? '

At first I couldn't see what you mean
After what I've seen caught up in between
I was just part of a machine that had no meaning
Laying on grass that was anything but green

'Why've you been here so long,
If you've felt so wrong,
Hidden from yourself and the ones you love
So far away from home and no where above
Hidden from the world and on your own
So far away from home and so alone? '
