They were everywhere and yet they were nowhere,
They were invisible and yet their presence was felt most profoundly,
They created the skyscrapers and yet had no roof on their heads,
They took care of our kids while theirs cried of hunger,
They walked for thousands of miles, while we took months to arrange for a few trains,
They were the nowhere people… and all they ever wanted was, to go home to be loved and feel safe just like all of us.
