Just a Nowhere Girl
In shadows
Not quite believing

Just a Nowhere Girl
No place to call home
To belong

Just a Nowhere Girl
I’ll fade away
Like a spirit
A ghost

Just a Nowhere Girl
No place
Will remember
When I’ve gone.


(I wonder if this poem resonates with other Third Culture Kids?

edit: Title was probably loosely inspired by the Beatles song’s titled ‘Nowhere Man’ – but not its content. I didn’t realise until after this poem was written that there is a movie titled ‘Nowhere Girl’ – I’ll probably have to watch it now!)
