BOAT PEOPLE

BOAT PEOPLE

Adrift in the shifting waters
Of a shoreless ocean
In a leaking paper boat
Plugging lost hopes –
In search of un fulfilled dreams
Our voyage of fantasy
Is just an illusion
And illusion is our business.
Marooned in similar boats
Longing for friendly harbours
To unload our cargo of agony
The promised land is still far-off
And we chase mirages
In this watery desert –
Sinking and swimming, gasping for breath
Glimpsing now and then a faint shoreline
A silver lining among storm clouds
A twinkling Pole star in the bleak sky –
Navigating in uncharted regions
I wish the end is nearer
To rest my weary head
In the dark cold ocean bottom
Or in your soft warm lap.
