Thailand Poem #3

There are many fish, but one ocean.

They may swim at different depths,

But they share one country.

There are many stars, but one sky.

They’re all so far away we may never reach them,

But they share one country.

There are many children whose father left long ago;

They may not know where they come from, but—

One day, like fish and stars,

They will gather in one country.

Then, they will

No longer know

What it means to be fatherless.
