Exile From The Land

Exile From The Land

Exile from the land 
Returned to the sea
Like a prodigal child 
Seeking sanctuary 

Although the smoke is in your blood 
Cities choke natural souls such as you 
Flames of creative passion and desire 
Must ignite and should not be subdued 

An exile from the land 
Returned to the sea
Whose onward shore
Is a mystery to thee and me
A mystery to me and thee
Mystery to thee and me

Nice write Mr Floyd. I liked the lines :-"Like a prodigal child seeking sanctuary" .
For we are all seeking a sanctuary from the ills of the world. Somewhere we can find the Peace to be. DD X
