Living In-Between (for refugees)

You live between now and then,

and you are

on the way

but not yet departed.


You stay between two lines

but cross neither:

held in that uncertain space

between all that is

and all that is not.


You are this

but you want to be that.

Not home

but searching for a home.

You are living in-between,

in a place of certainty

and uncertainty.


Neither in one place or another

there is no choice

or opinion;

for you live


in that border territory

where you are forgotten

but still remember.


You remain alone

but always with others,


but with no direction,

living and dead.
