Diaspora (To all among us who hope to attain a better future overseas and in the struggle lose a piece of their souls).Inspired by a post of a fellow blogger a while ago who underwent this experience.

A while ago you rushed to leave:

prospects of fortunate future

waiting on the other side.

A while ago you thought less

of pollution,cows,dust,economy

excited by no drugdery

that seemed to cause misery

You thought to touch skies

and aspire to higher vistas..

Yet a moth to flame thee be

never tiring of burning

in ambition noticing

nada;you carve a niche

it feels hollow crevice

anticipated fulfillment

never comes.you fly home

Sweet scent of homeland sand hits

your nostrils;never knew what bits

you shall miss;A while it seems

you are here;yet it feels home

tis always been;a tear gleams

in thou eye;something is amiss

your cosmos is altered from

what hath been;home

is nowhere to be seen.

Struggling to find centre

semblance of control

exerted;staggering

losing yourself

hoping to chance

upon one glance

that sets all right

and ends thy plight;

the world put right.

soon it may come

your way;caught in bliss;

With a newfound joy

you shall set on your quest

a new spring in step

as life;it ‘never’ lets one rest!
