Home Is Where The Soul Stays - Poem by samuel nze

Back tide water brings the swan back
Home.
Home is where the heart is.
Inside those four walls
Where papa smokes pipe
And mama keels the pot;
Inside those four walls
Where siblings play ayo
And visitors inform of market prices;
Inside those four walls
Where my girlfriend steals me a kiss
The moment grandma's back is turned;
Inside those four walls
Where my bed is covered with sheets
And my feet refuse to move.
Back tide water brings me back
Home.
Home is where the soul stays.
