I Belong

I heard them croon, “I belong”
when I was all alone.
A haunting melody of one song.
How could I have known?

I kept my wits about me
as a closet shut-in.
No one really knew me,
neither kith or kin.

So, by a simple phrase,
proclaimed melodic’ly.
I can face new days,
in my new family.

For you see, “I belong”
is a mantra not a plea.
I too will sing one song,
as “I” becomes “We.”
