Man Without An Identity

There once was a man
Who lived in a global village
He was raised in a foreign land
Alien to his past ages

Then the flux came
And he found himself
In the middle of a rat race
Among the giants, an elf

They asked him if he knew
His mother tongue
And he said ‘no’
For he did not study it

They asked him if he knew
The language of his land
And he said ‘no’
He knew only the global language

They threw him out
They spat at him
All in their minds
Their words, their actions

The man cried and he cried
But they would not listen to his pleas
For he was not a man
But a man without an identity
