I don't even care
I'm fully aware
I won't make it there
Ever. I never.
Why won't things change
For me, so deranged
My life rearranged.
Why can't I mend.
I made all amends.
Where are my friends?
Dead, they are cold
Buried in a hole.
Will I never be whole?
Won't that sun come
And wash it all away
All of my pain
I can't escape
My body's been raped.
My home far away.
Home. Nowhere is home.
I don't belong, it's so wrong, I don't belong.
Where is home?
Author's Notes: This one's a bit on the dark side, from a time when I was roaming from place to place. I included it in case there was someone out there who feels like I used to and was searching for a kindred spirit. I hope this helps :)
A number of my poems from this time follow this theme of being gone and searching for home, though it wasn't exactly on purpose. Ones like these don't really follow a logical line of thought at all, as I am really trying to express a mix of emotions I really don't have the words for. Longing for a home I've left, despair at knowing I don't belong there, "pining" for a home searched for but not yet found, feeling that I'll never find it, ecstasy at having escaped a home where I felt confined and imprisoned, unappreciated, and not accepted. "Until Then", "Restless Being", "Your Son, Apart, " and of course "Home" all follow this theme, and it was a chronicle of my struggle to find something I very much needed desperately, though I couldn't even describe what I was looking for. Now I know that it was the home I've found in Paganism. And I haven't as yet put into words my joy and relief at having achieved what I searched for so long. A poem dedicated to this forthcoming, hopefully. :)
