CULTIVATING EMPOWERMENT THROUGH POETRY

Never Left Home

Leave a comment

I’ve been away from

home so long that I’ve

forgotten my reason

for leaving.

I know that wherever

I am is home now —

and that comforts me.

I find family in friends–

the true hearts that

gather round–the

joyful moment of learning

something new -smiles

of understanding–

gracefully, gracefully

we dance together.

It seems as if we’ve all

done this before — but

it will be better–

this time — better

because we know we

want t to be — better

because we’re ready,

ready, ready, now.

Oh I love the rain

drops tapping at

the window pane —

bringing the coolness

to the early summer–

and asking us to listen

to its peaceful dream.
