Looking beyond

I have come a long way.

I have lost every one

I call family, people I love.

I have reached out to them

For forgiveness and reconciliation

But I am still standing alone.

And now with sinking heart

And overwhelming sorrow

I’m looking beyond this;

I’m moving forward but faraway

From here. I have to start a new

Beginning, knowing nobody.

I also know I will find new friends

And some very close ones.

This is my anthem,

An anthem of a melanesian woman.
