Feeling shaken
Afraid to awaken
For I am an outsider,
A stranger, a foreigner
In this place they insist it’s better than my home
I try smiling but no one smiles back,
It’s as if I’m not even there
I try greeting but no one seems to care
I am a loner in this place
They insist one day will feel like home
How I wish we hadn’t left
For back there I was human,
I had a name,
I had friends,
I had an identity.
