Refugees & More - a Poem

Old song of a ship sailing from Scotland to Canada
People continue to migrate all over the world
Seeking better lives
Stories of stories of stories
From one generation to the next
Groundhog Day upon Groundhog Day
The timeless, endless, humanizing project
Emptiness exploring emptiness
What it means to incarnate
To be embodied in flesh
Form in endless variety
Appearances only
From holy perfection
To apparent depths of depravity
To be born, live, grow old, and die as a sentient being
The material manifestation of (don’t even attempt a name)
That which words, ideas & concepts can’t begin to describe.

Refugee by Davide Monteleone
