Floating People

By Nur Kamaal

what it is longing for
a wooden boat in the deep sea
with full of hunger floating alone
no frontier in hovering waves

it is bobbing up and down
in flickering paths of the sea
upon the waves it is overtaken
no refuge has appeared yet

it is pushed off like a baby
deviously abandoned by its mother
being lost the way of nowhere
with a tale of heart-shattering

without the destination of its voyage
crying out grievously with a hope
of refuge on the shoreless sea
not knowing where to move forward

A poem based on the boats of people in the deep river floating for several days but are not allowed to get on the shore for refuge.
