Where Is My Home? - Poem by Vani Agarwal

I am lost can you please help me?
I am locked in a cage someone set me free!
But even if you free me where will I go?
I will have to hide under your cemented shadow.
But if I collect myself again, will you lay on me some light?
Then maybe I can lift my head and ask for my right.
Where is my home, I would ask,
Maybe you'd tell me when you get rid of that mask.
I know you wouldn't tell me, you just can't,
For my shouting out to you, for you is a chirpy chant.
I am tired of living in this nightmare,
I want back my home, I want my share.
I want back my house, I want back my tree,
Which is surrounded my greenery and has dancing leaves.
I want I want back my house that is lost in your dust,
I want back my home, whose boundaries are made of trust.
But the truth remains that I depend on you and you depend on me,
So please stop and listen, why do you flee?
I want a voice to tell you something,
That I ask for my home, it is not a song I sing.
So let's hold hands, god has made us one,
Let's rebuild our world and not stop until done.
Let's make the world a better place once more,
Let's open a new chapter, open a new door!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem describes the feelings of all those lovely animals residing on Earth without a voice. Through this poem, I am trying to send the message to all readers that an ecosystem survives only when there is a balance, as this is our home and theirs as well.
