Exiled

In a strange land with a strange people 
  who worship a god different
Convenient, finite, yet way far away 
  seasons are not the same
There is more rain, or more dry earth
  there is no rich soil
They eat differently, speak a language
  not understood, yet
Exile leads us to discover
  what is important
What is key, that we are related
  in a human family
Bigger than we imagined
  yet we are not understood
Because we are small
  distant, from a world away
Exiled to learn all this
  and more of our strength
