belonging

it is easier now
to think of going
anywhere

i’ve spent time
in places where i thought
i was meant to fit
(my continent of birth,
the land of my ancestors,
the cities of our colonizers)
and found myself
always somehow
incongruent

there is an ease
in knowing that
there is no particular
somewhere where
i should be

to belong nowhere
leaves possibility
gaping open

to belong nowhere
means everywhere
is a place for you.
