Waiting to belong







How does it feel...
To stand like a stranger
in a place where you actually belong?

How does it feel...
To be silent lyrics of unheard pain
in the heart's sorrow song?

How does it feel...
To be an unexplored part,
like a hidden face of a fallen dice?

How does it feel...
To be a single ugly truth
standing naked among million lies?

How does it feel...
To be unrecognizable, like a drop
searching for its identity in the mighty ocean?

How does it feel...
To be away from the only person
who could read your silence and emotion?

It's a very strong need: the need to belong. Nice lines that capture the depth of the need.

Simran said...

When any one of them happens to us...that draws us back and deceive from the very moment... it feels lost, lonely and miserable... especially when the last one happens.
Touching!!

Its so beautiful, You have caught the pain and confusion of every soul who is different so beautifully. The strange feeling of un-belonging that creeps into one at such moments are incredible.

A very meaningful and poignant composition Valli. Every para tells a story in itself.

Sorry for my somewhat prolonged absence btw dear, life keeps me on the treadmill all the time. But I see what I miss when I read compositions like this.
