The foreigner

The foreigner,
The outsider,
Always and never alone.

Standing out in a crowd,
Voices screaming out loud,
But, nobody says a word.

Look at the pavement,
Look at ME
I'm walking tall,
Can't you see -
Look we are the same!

We look strange,
Its true -
Cant go alone -
It's too new.

But what if I need a helping hand.
Will you lend it to me?
Or keep staring indifferently
Walking away on the other side?

You smile, say hello.
A new friend,
I know - 
Thank you for showing me the way.

Lost in a land
I might never understand,
I needed you there
And from the outside, I am let in.
