Can I say
My God is mine
When all I see
Is me being jostled
To the end of his line?

Can I say
Your religion is mine
When here I am
Sitting cooped and closed
Building my own mental shrine?

Can I say
My land is mine
When I know too well
That I have to renew the lease
When it ages beyond ninety-nine?

Can I say
Your heart is mine
When it safely resides
In the deepest nook of me
And yet I long for it and pine?

Can I say
My soul is mine
When I look for it
And find, instead of me,
Your face stare back and whine?

Can I… ?
