Belonging Somewhere   

Living a life

Teaches a moral. 

Bearing a soul

Fills the void of emptiness. 

A deep source of imagination

Leads to surety of knowledge. 

Searches can be held

Until you find

The devotion, the focus

And the outlook.

Wearing your worldview

Does not make you ignorant.

I am amazed with subjectivity

The endless words

Flowing like joyful river.

Coming across the world

Where the crowd is the leader

I have understood the value of one

Among multitudes; 

Multitudes that don’t belong nowhere.
