The Overwhelming Feeling Of Home
I used to feel the overwhelming feeling of home.
The feeling you get from a place where you grew up.
A place where you first did this and you first did that.
A place where you seem to know everybody, everything,
and you knew every nook and cranny of the town.
A place where you felt like you were amongst your tribe.
Then comes a day when that place can no longer be home.
Mother Nature makes you pay the price for living in a bowl.
And you pick up and move on and try to get back some normalcy.
You make frequent trips back to try and find the home feeling.
