poetry 101 rehab: home

“the ache for home lives in all of us the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned”   ― maya angelou,
“the ache for home lives in all of us
the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned”
― maya angelou
                ever hear about the one who was always alone?
                                                            how he tried as much as he could to atone
                how he woke in fright
                looked round for the light
                                                            and realised at last that being alone was being at home

  1. Reading your poem I want nothing more than to break down crying and thank heavens for the home and family I got.
    And to wish for every lonely soul out there to have someone caring for them…

    Your writing is so emotional I can’t believe it…

    # here’s a mental hug for you…

  2. Beautiful poem! It’s sad but also strong. We all want somewhere to belong but, as someone who really enjoys her alone time and ungrounded mostly, self-awareness is really good. So mixed feelings in a good way 🙂

  3. this is what finding inner peace means maybe?
    beautiful poem, Andy…
    its an interesting image to pair it with… especially the shift from focus to blur… one would expect you start with a blur to get a clear vision in the end… but then that man is still searching for the light I guess… we never stop searching for it…
