Where I Belong

If a past life beckons, do you answer the call?

By Ashley GomezPublished about a year ago 1 min read

Weary and broken, confused and yearning for more;

Homesick for a home I’ve never seen before;

Eeriness befalls me as I search my memory;

Recalling a past life in puzzled reverie;

Earthbound are we not? Do we get a second chance?

I question it no further, for life’s a funny dance;

Believing it true – there's but one thing to do;

En route to a land so familiar, yet new;

Leagues across the eastern sea, I feel my soul swell;

On this journey back, my fears I do dispel;

Nestled now on this island lit in neon and chrome,

Giddy to be back, this is where I’ll call home.
