Poem - Alone from Home

Updated on June 4, 2011

Alone from Home

I want to go home

Except I don’t know where home is

I live in a place I do not like

With people I do not know

Who think they know me.


I fumble my way through a job I have no interest in

And a relationship that’s not interesting.

I thought I had a chance at something

But I have missed everything.

I am no good at pretence

With no desire to try and impress

All I seek is the Truth

In a world I perceive to be false.

I wish people could be more honest

And yet knowing that a wish is mere fantasy

I must be deceiving myself.

If truth as at the heart of the every matter

And home is where the heart is

Why is home so elusive?

      Hope you find home. Sad to know others share this feeling. You can always go home, but if don't remember where it is, you can't.
