Abandoned I am

By all

Since the time I awakened

I have been roaming the earth

Free of bondage, in thousands of nicknames

Wherever I go, I pick a new name

And abandon the old one

Thereby, I never age

I remain ever youthful

I have danced in the rains

I have crawled in the desert heat

I have swam the seas

To reach the summit of the highest peak

I have seen the bondage of the old man on the street

And the mother to the kitchen

Caring for the children who are but scoundrels

I have loved but never loved

Shunned from the lights of joy

Exiled to aimless roaming

In futile search of a home

That exist not for the abandoned me…
