Foreigner

Image-analysisby Orly Segal16 Nov 2020

I live in this foreign country,
They keep looking at me.
They always stare when I’m around,
It’s not the way it meant to be.

I should have been around my kind,
I would have felt like I belong.
But my family did not have any choice,
So now I just have to stay strong.

I just wish I looked the same as them,
So I could fit well in the crowd.
I would have gotten the same starting point,
I would have made my father proud.

I want to make something of myself,
I strive to achieve more.
My life will have a purpose, not just waste,
And that is something to live for.
