TO HAPPY
On angry seas I cast away
No looking back beyond today
A self inflicted escapee
Numb and nameless I see
Nothing
But a refugee

Can’t sail the sea to stop the tide
Can’t kill the bandits they’re inside
The crippling war is in my mind
I need to learn how to find
Peace
For the refugee

Day by day I change my mind
To patience and kindness
For myself on this journey
From the dark of me
To happy

I’m on a voyage all the same
Across tsunamis in my brain
Lost possessions, expectations
Naked anticipation of
Free-dom
For the refugee

To happy
For the refugee
