Emigres

Souls asunder

Seeking truth

Adventure, freedom.

This is youth.

Quietude,

A useless quest,

A journey lies

Within each breast.

Fortitude,

Their fearsome friend,

A trusty ally

Till journey’s end.

To travel to

A foreign shore

New land, new life,

Where less is more.

Two souls seeking liberty,

Fraternity or sanctuary.

With such endeavour shining bright

Freedom found, in truth and light.
