To Belong - Poem by Mereia Namatua

To be able to belong is to feel secure
To be able to belong is to feel safe
But in this world, in this era
To belong is like oil in water
You are suspended on top
You never mix well with the others
So you only truly belong
When you are by your self
When you are by blood related people
Who are like you in most ways than not
But with so called friends
You will never belong
Sometimes they laugh with you
And still they laugh when you cry
So you are better off when you only belong with
Family
