Why to hide now, why to feel shy, I cry
I am detached, yet I am attached to my soil…
My life is an open book
Everyone talks about me, but none cares
Is it the heat from my heart?
We tried sailing via rivers and sea
With just rubber tubes as support.
Our legs and hands, everyone needs
I asked river, ” Do you need my heart?”
River said ” Your heart is full of longing, I cannot take it !!”
Sea said ” A heart full of pain, I cannot sink it!!”
Sky is where you belong!!
You pledged all your body part to dependants…
Heart which is with nature,
Seen the pleasure and pain
Is very heavy now…
Will you let me dignity!
Will you let me some place of my own!
May be I could leave the burden of my heart…
River and sea along with sky could share it too.
My heart is immobile, stuck to longing for homeland…
And for my part of nature.
I left it, so that I could see it again on my way back
Now, with this much suffering, hardly I can see the shore nearing…
I am giving up my country
I am giving up to you
To decide, which way to go
So that I’m home
So that the heaviness just slips away…
A migrant heart needs love and care
Shower O rain, wash away my pain…
