Where’s Home ?

It’s dark in her heart, and her life suffering symptoms of  totally bleak night

No light, torching her murky shadows

But she knows her path

But can’t walk home.

You think home is where you’ve place to shelter

To stretch your legs, lie low the couch?

You think that’s home

Your birthplace, cradle of your birthstone?

That’s not home

Home is everywhere, where

A girl child poses fit before life

Not mansions with balconies of hunger

Not country parks with ranches of sorrow.

Home, still, no longer home

When the imam preaches terror

The priest, monetarily mental

Greed feeding on the flock

– pocket wise.

So where is your home?

Mimy, the girl sitting alone

Down a bantu zone

Tell me,

Where do you call home?
