A Place To Belong

Taken by me, Portland OR
Portland OR

WHERE DO I BELONG.

WHERE IS MY HOME.

IS IT THE PLACE I WAS BORN.

IS IT THE PLACE I AM CURRENTLY.

IS IT THE PLACE I FEEL MOST COMFORTABLE.

IS IT THE PLACE MY SOUL RUNS FREE.

DO I EVEN KNOW OF SUCH A PLACE.

ALL I KNOW IS WHEREVER I AM

I CRAVE TO BE SOMEWHERE ELSE.

AND WHEN I AM SOMEWHERE NEW

I WISH FOR MORE.

WHATS WRONG WITH ME.

AM I UNGRATEFUL.

DO I REFUSE TO SEE THE HAPPINESS WHEN IT’S RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME.

I DON’T WANT TO BE LIKE THIS.

I WANT TO GO OUTSIDE AND ENGULF THE ENTIRE WORLD INSIDE OF ME

TO FEED OFF THE ENERGY OF THE LIFE INHABITING IT.

TO FEEL THE EARTH UNDER MY FEET WITH EVERY STEP I TAKE

WHEREVER I AM.

I WANT THE WIND TO RUSTLE MY HAIR

AND FEEL THE SUN’S WARMTH ON MY FACE

EVEN ON THE DARKEST DAYS.

I WANT THE TREE’S ROOTS TO LATCH ONTO ME

AND NEVER LET ME GO

SO THAT WHEN I AM SOMEWHERE I DON’T BELONG,

IN A PLACE I DON’T FEEL COMFORTABLE

I CAN GRAB MY LIFELINE

AND HAVE THE ROOTS PULL ME BACK TO THE ONE PLACE

MY SOUL FEELS AT HOME.

I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE DAY I FIND THAT PLACE.


I wrote half of this in mid-July, when I was having a major “I don’t belong here I don’t belong there WHERE AM I MEANT TO BE?!?!” crisis, and just finished it today. I hope you enjoy it or relate to it in some way.

ALL THE CREDIT GOES TO ME DO NOT STEAL THIS THANKS I APPRECIATE IT.
