Searching for Home


Her eyes glowed with such ambition,
And her mouth spoke words of love and kindness.
She took pride in wandering;
She walked to find the place her heart longed for.
O' the places she searched to find her home.

She made her way through crowded paths
And swam through salted waters.
She danced in gardens
And sweetly kissed strangers.
She ran, she searched, but still could not find.

She failed to realize the lives she touched,
And the hearts she changed.
She failed to realize the home her heart longed for
Would never be found.
That the light she was chasing was not the world's.

That light, her home
Had been following her footprints.
She had not realized,
She had held it all along.
