They say home is where the heart is
But what if my heart is somewhere else?
Far away from the four walls I call my bedroom
Far away from the places I've cried too many tears;
Far away, where my soul chases the wind
Where the river slams my worries into slabs of stone
And I can submerge myself in the frigid water
Rest my tired bones on the river bed
Drowning out my thoughts
Silencing the voices in my head
Until I break the surface
Desperate for a breath
And discover I am free.
