Where are my thoughts?
My thoughts are not here.
They are far away
And drift in the distance.
Often I lifted my head and looked up to the moon.
Often I lowered the glance and thought of somewhere else.
When - finally - when I will be there
Where my heart feels drawn to?
No answer .... silence!
My wish will only stay a dream forever.
Being captured in this body,
Being captured in this time,
Being mingled with human society,
But being remembered that I will never feel quite human.
Where I belong?
I have dreamt that dream for long
And it stays always in my mind.
But I notice clearly fine
That only the ways of nature can be mine.
Her trees give me comfort and also make me weep
Her earth lets me grow and gain strength to share
Her water lets me live the flux of life
And her air lets me breath the soft wind
That touches my skin.
I clearly see the light of moon and stars
Left for me in the sky to show me my path
I can see it, I will follow it,
Will find friends, will seek truth in this world ... in this life -
There will be a place for me, too.
And there will be a light in the sky,
A light only a few humans can see
But those cast out, standing in the dark will feel
And so I will keep on dreaming the dream
That will stay in my memory still for long time.
My thoughts will find their way home
To where they and I belong and can be free -
My thoughts and me....
