Longings

All that I long for-
Is to return to my home,
Is this too much to ask for?
Is this too much to long for?

All that I ask for-
Is to return to my Homeland,
Is this too much to ask for?
Is this too much to long for?

All that I have always wanted-
Is freedom for my country,
Is this too much to ask for?
Is this too much to long for?

I know I have a house-
But this is not my home,
I know I have a place to stay-
But this is not where  I belong.

Though I enjoy many freedoms-
I know I am not free,
Though I live in freedom-
Still I long to be Free!
