Homesick

And slowly
All the merry Sidhwas*
And all the lovely Parwatis**
Set off
For distant lands
Trying to forget
Starting life afresh
Searching for love
Looking for hope
Slowly however
Realization struck
In the safe little havens
Which they’d erected anew
Somehow
Never could they adjust,
For how could they
Wholly dwell
On foreign shores
When their hearts
Lived somewhere else

*A Parsi name
**A Hindu name
