#1 Home Coming

Poem by Christina


I recall

Leaving home

Going out there

On my own

For years

I was lost

Now my ears

Have been blocked


I swim in the ocean that covers the whole existence


But I’ve reached my limit

It’s time to take a breath

Head out to the surface to where I started

I cannot wait to go back


So I swam and swam and swam

Eventually I arrived

To where I thought home was

But now I stand here

I breath in the air around me

I stare at the ground underneath me

I look at what’s in front of me
