    It feels unfamiliar

    As the airplane's gears lower.

    Where am I?

    An alien in my land of birth.

    A country I love,

    Yet one I don't belong in.

    Those I cared for have gone

    By their own hand or disease.

    I feel like an outsider.

    This adopted environ

    Which showed me abuse and love

    Is not my home either.

    My soul mate has gone,

    My purpose dissipated.

    No anchors left in life,

    Adrift, barely afloat.

    I'm a mere stranger,


    These thoughts are on my mind recently and today I listened to the following which really captures what I am feeling, and sad about.

    Mary Black - Don't Let Me Come Home a Stranger

    As I walked out one evening
    To breathe the air and sooth my mind
    I thought of friends and the home I had
    And all those things I left behind oh...

    A silent star shone on me
    My eyes saw the far horizon
    As if to pierce this veil of time
    And escape this earthly prison oh...

    Will there come a time when the memories fade
    And pass on with the long, long years?
    When the ties no longer bind
    Lord save me from this darkest fear
    Don't let me come home a stranger
    I couldn't stand to be a stranger

    In this place so far from home
    They know my name but they don't know me
    They hear my voice; they see my face
    But they can't lay no claim on me oh...


    As I walk this universe
    I free my mind of time and space
    I wander through the galaxy
    But never do I find my place oh...

    A Dream

    To escape.
    Run far from there,
    Miles from the alcohol.

    To find happiness.
    Race to a new city,
    Unending possibilities.

    To find love.
    Sprint abroad,
    Hoping to feel wanted.

    To find safety.
    Race away,
    Praying for an end to the pain.

    To find my soulmate.
    Rush to her arms,
    Longing for ever after.

    To lose my one,
    Time to wake up.

    "There is a time in life it seems

    For believing in dreams,

    for me it's gone.

    And though I realize today

    Dreams are empty anyway,

    I still feel wronged."
