how can i answer?

how can i answer
there is no language
there is only
a boy
who tried to be a man
there is no nation
there is only
a boy
who cried for his family
there is only
mau
pushing back the wave
did not happen
there is another mau
his head on fire
with new things
what does he say
he was born in the wave
that killed his family
there is no nation
there is only
a boy
there is only
a ghost-girl
they are the nation
he is
a blue hermit crab
searching
for a new shell
it will never be
big enough
will you ask him
not to be
any answer
is the wrong one
i am who i am
i am mau
who shouted
did not happen
i am mau
who is
a hermit crab
i cannot change this
will you ask me to
how can i answer

The End
