Go Back Home - Poem by Jennifer Sol

And to feel cold as ice in blistering heat
Is to be a lonely glacier lost in the desert
All too soon you will melt away to a puddle
A puddle very quickly sucked away
By the thirsty lips of desert dwellers
What are you now? Nothing more than
Water to moisten the parched throats of another
You let yourself be split apart, gone separate ways
The two who drank you leave in opposite directions
Split in two, dragged one way is the real you
And the other, you are merely a clone of popularity
Tears are shed for you, as you divide yourself
Amongst the masses, just trying to belong
Just a vapor in the wind now, do you hear them calling
Go back home, be yourself once more
Cease your following and own your body once more
