I know not my home

My home is here

Two countries divided

I know who I am

I know not my house anymore.

What is different anyway?

We are the same in flesh and blood

I know who I am

I know not my house anymore.

Could I wipe the smell of fear?

My body seems to have forgotten its own.

My house is where I am

I know not my home anymore.

* In difficult times, call it race, caste or any kind of inhumanity, often people are filled with insecurities about not only their “home” but also their “existence’. My thoughts.
