Foreign hands

My fate is in cold foreign hands

they are scrutinizing me, analyzing me

without understanding me

they follow the rules of their logic

and not those of compassion and love

they intrude in me

they torment me

they create the deepest pain and despair

as in their grip all I am becomes completely hopeless

entirely unintelligible

and they threaten to even take away from me

the oxygen I breathe and the sun that lights the world for me

plunging me into utter darkness
