The Moments Of Immigration - Poem by Masa MbathaOpasha


Moving from place to place in search of satisfaction
redefining dreams, inventing hopes of happy faces
questioning life and its intentions, gestures in words misunderstood
...those are the moments of immigration!
Eating poetry from dawn to dusk
denying the mono cultural happiness with sad eyes
The elegance of peace in a nameless melody
...those are the moments of immigration!
The poor stamp their feet and weep
the rich smile in their adorable indifference
What's true can never be false
...those are the moments of immigration!
A daring courage fearless of doom
looking for something or somebody to love
a connubial alliance with the universe
...those are the moments of immigration!
Beginning again without anything
with wishes boldly written on the ten fingers
childhood walls blowing in the wind
...Yes, those are the moments of immigration!
