Homeland

Let them deny painfully

Where their belly fell

Let them run hastily

To where we can’t tell

 

They are like rain beaten birds

of the forest

O’

Why not tie a bond

 

And plan to re-make

the smelling pond?

 

I’m voicing the reality now

Listen,

This is my homeland

I stand to be a native

The indigenous lover

of my land and culture

 

May I wear not

The visitor’s shoe

Even if

I walk bare footed

For I keep the strength

in dignified forefathers

 

How hot

the gravels may be

I still seize not

to be a member

of my homeland
