STRANGER ON HIS OWN LAND

by rado gatchalian

 

 

the Word says we are all the same:

but as I travel on the train

i know

we are all strangers -

walking on our own possessive garments;

 

each mind - away from

home:

silence, tears, isolation -

each man is a god of unknown

legends;

 

the eye meets the eye

but we see a face of a lost child

 

the ears hear various voices

but words - altered and void

 

we keep on coming and going,

searching and losing:

 

some may cross the village unseen by time

 

others venture on a land where no names are known

 

few will visit a temple of purple and brown

 

many will stay in a place they do not want

 

the day when these carriages

can no longer carry our burden -

 

i will bear the cross on my own,

and live on mountains where everyone is welcome.
