Maybe I am an alien
Coming from a far away galaxy
And maybe that is the reason
That I cannot fit in
That I sometimes feel like a stranger
And long for home
On a planet where houses are built on clouds
Where everything tastes like the rainbow
Where I’m completely free
There, on that planet
Maybe there are no wars
No lies, no hypocrisy
People don’t hurt one another
And they leave you be
On that planet
One can follow one’s dreams.
And being open-minded
Is not just eating or dressing a certain way
There, they don’t care about our personal life
Maybe that is my home
This poem is from my second book, A Jar of Memories.
I so relate to this poem. I wish I knew which galaxy I vell from because Earth is not home.
