From where we come

From where we come
    to where we go
blithe or careworn
    all same fare
from here to there

to cry bloody tears
    as if breathing's sin
to hang heads low
    to weep deep within
has house caved in

to where we go
    from where we come
home between homes
    destiny's children
shuttled to and fro

is elsewhere home
    or this our abode
nowhere's children
    blown far abroad
on wind's highroad

thus we shall travel
    thrall to who's will
elements kindred
    as if to redress
our inimical role

we abide with wonders
    no deals from fate
no questions    no answers
    is earth purloining
death's estate
