“Exiled from the earth that gave me birth;
Lost my way and lost my thoughts, living in the mouth of dearth.
But my heart dares to dream,
Still yearns for a life of esteem…
Finally, having crossed the stream,
I step on a land I might call my own,
But is this where I belong?
Because even in this new ‘home’,
I’ve been betrothed to deterioration too long.”
