Take Me Back

To a foreign place

I was sent to learn and venture

  Fright and daze filled my days in this place

Wandering and praying to go back

Home, I miss my home

I’m Home, my prayers were heard

I’m back at last but not for long, I suggest

Happiness, joy, relief filled my days in my place

I’m home, I thought.


Something drowns, what is it?

My soul

A vast sea of emptiness drowns my soul   

Should have stayed and prayed for nothing to happen

Now I regret what I said, I am caged

I wish to go back to that place

to where the fright and daze feed what my souls crave.
