Beyond borders

For I bear kinship to all but none

Beyond borders

No nation in heart do I bear

No flame in speech do I share

For a limited portion of land

Is but million speckles of sand

 

Notionless, nationless I stand

On my heart heavy the hand

Swearing oath is not my kind

Allegiance is but to the mind

 

Motionless, nationless yet blind

To coloured drapes you unwind

Red throats hoarse would sing

Anthems all emotions stirring

 

Passionless, nationless I wring

Hands tied by this unseen thing

That binds me not to any place

For each kingdom is but a face

 

Cautionless, nationless I pace

Countries leaving not a trace

For a line one would not heed

Wonders laying beyond greed

 

Lines are of war the very seed

Gift, love turned to want, need

Flaming speech my soul I spare

For no nation in mind do I care
