i belong

Post by: Frances Sedayao – For the children of Aida and Ibdaa, and all children of the world, young and old

i belong

thoughts of desert lands
and salty seas linger
my heart belongs to you

to the mothers and fathers
women and men i belong to you
to the old and young
i belong
you, removed and imprisoned
i belong
beautiful dark angel of the land
in your hands i belong
to you who only know strife
i belong
to the olive trees relinquished from
the land, to you i belong

to the cause of people who long for home
i belong

in your homes i belong
for your songs in the wind
your hand prints on the lands
and your dances in the seas
run through my veins
and i am happily captured

to you who long for home
to your RETURN
for your RETURN
i belong
