Ellis Island

Ellis Island
(2012)

Burn everything
Take everything you want
From me
From our past.

I don’t care
If my suitcase drowns deep
Or my ship turns
Into ashes
Because the sea has cleansed
The darkness I had lived
As the turmoil passes.

I’ve sailed for years
And years
And finally came ashore.

I’ll be an immigrant
Trailing, doing my way
Into your soul.

Will you be my Ellis Island
And let me come inside
Once more?
