Lost? So am I.

I want to go home but I don’t know where home is..

Is it the one floor house with the yellow leaves and the wide terrace?

Or is the gray stone house with grass and pink flowers to greet,

Is where Lucas’s bark follow?

Or where my grandparents feet touches,

Is it where the rain touches the soil?

Or is it where my mother sits with her indifference,

Is it where my father toils behind piles of work?

Or is it on an edge of a cliff where my heart thunders to be,

Is it where my hands tremble to touch?

Or is it under the waves of the roaring sea,

Or is it in a garden of fruitful trees?

I do not know what this means,

Some say the home is where the heart is,

But honestly, I do not know where my heart is either.

  1. I really liked your piece. Here is some info about a new online literary project about mothers I am creating to fund raise for Charlottesville, Virginia Black Mama Day Bail Out 2018, a program to move Moms out of jails to their homes for Mother’s Day. I would really like to add your work to the project. Please, let me know if you are interested. The blog page is @ judylit.blogspot.com.
