The clouds claim the sky
The waves have the sea
The unborn child
Has the womb of his mother
While I had no one
To call my own.
I am a human being
That has inalienable rights
Yet I am like a river
Among the seductive curves
Of the rocks
Like the wind
That twists and turns
Like the weed
Pulled off from the soil bed
No one wants to care.
I am at the mercy
Of your mighty hands
Begging that even just a moment
Someone gives solace
And shares a place
With this rootless human being.
