I'm surrounded by complete strangers.
I feel vulnerable, yet somewhat safe.
I see names that appear familiar, but my surroundings only a reminder of my foreign face.
& my curious eyes a signal that I don't belong.
My smile a tip that life hasn't hit me just yet.
As the sky darkens and the clouds fade into the background ...
I wonder about tomorrow.
Oh how it will feel to look into your soul again,
And embrace you once more.
