Strange Land

They were all speaking but I couldn’t understand

They looked at me different

Because I wasn’t one of them

I sat there as the time passed by

Just an invisible entity hiding behind

They welcomed me in their strange land

Though I was hesitant to stay there

They spoke to me with love and care

All I could think of was how different I am

I struggled to laugh with them

I was surrounded with thoughts in my head

Being part of their family was a new adventure

May be I wasn’t ready to transform into a new creation

I asked myself do I really belong here

Or is this baseless, the fear

The fear of being loved again

The fear of someone being there during the rain

The voice spoke to me after sometime

Its your time for healing my child

You have been alone in this dealing

Its finally your time to embrace this feeling

  • Comment from author about the poem: After so much of pain, one stops believing that they can heal one day and when the right person comes in they are full of doubts and questions but we need to remind ourselves that the time for our healing will come eventually

    "They welcomed me in their strange land

    Those words are incredibly relatable. I appreciate the effort that you went through to put such a common feeling into such communicable words.
