The ongoing search
Of a lost child is on.
In the city of over-crowdedness
Places all strange and insecure
Faces known, some unknown faces,
Nothing appeals, nothing comforts
The emptiness within is widening
The scare of life and death terrifies
The child closes the eyes
He stops the hunt, and
In stillness he finds
His father waiting for him
More desperate for him, than he himself
To embrace him, to love him
To take him home.
