Poetry – “This Place I Called Home”
It’s time for a break, I am quite ready;
Living, not laughing, a life of pretending.
Away from this town, seek a new venue;
Ignoring my past, emotional breakthrough.
Is there a reason, I’m feeling so distant;
Obeying my instincts, so I don’t miss this.
What are my options, I wish it was clear;
Imagine my future, if I stay here?
Onward and upward, the saying is said;
Open and honest, remembering when.
Life was so simple, when did it all change;
Taking our lives, to the next stage.
But finding myself, is the first step;
Living, not dying, great vision I’ve kept.
Feelings have shifted, wondering why;
The roads I have traveled, and things I have tried.
What is my purpose, where is my glory;
Under this madness, I pray for a story.
On to the challenge, taking the journey;
Will I succeed, avoiding all worries?
