You don’t know
How it feels
To feel abandoned
Disoriented, homeless
Unprotected and lost
Do you?

It’s the worst thing
That can happen to
A child, a youth in
The making, a heart
In the breaking, an
Adult early forsaken.

It follows you
All your life
Like a boat sailing
And sailing and sailing
Looking, for land
To go ashore, never-finding

Sometimes I see
A pair of eyes
And I know that
You too were abandoned
And have never found
Your way back home again

The world is full of
Loneliness and stories

– Che Chidi Chukwumerije.
