Passport

Passport short poem

Photo by nedrichards

I realised late in my life that I was Imported to this world from an unknown world

I thought the world I was born belongs to me and none dare question my citizen ship
I travelled freely without any permission within the part of the world I was born
I wanted to see other part of my world which I had not seen

I was bewildered when I was not permitted to go to other parts of my world
I was told to pass the port I was living, I should apply for passport
I got confused for a while and then realised the whole world where I was born does not belong to me in totality

I applied for passport and could get with the condition that I am entitled to travel any where of my world only up to ten years
I realised that after all I am an imported species which one day will be exported back to the world I belong to without mercy
I was waiting for that Elusive passport which would permit me to go back to the world I belong to
I was unaware that authorities in my world have no powers to issue passport to export me back to the world I belonged to

I found to my utter surprise that without my knowledge one fine day I had landed in the world I belonged to
I was curious to know how I came there without relevant passport
I was told by the chief that only he has the power to import and export the people and nobody else
I was briefed by the chief that passport is required in the place where people fight each other on cast,creed, religions colour and boundary issues and not in the place where we all belonged to

I felt relieved I need not apply for passport at least in the wold where we all one day or other have to compulsorily come back
