Lost No Longer

The path I know

I’ve come to know

Memorized with

Feet not eyes

 

Walking down it

All around it

I look and see

Our forest through the trees

 

Familiar no more

Home is unsure

Of its place in my heart:

Here’s the end, not the start

 

Beginning to move on

I don’t want to hold on

To the thing that severed

All ties with me...clever

 

To keep agency outside

So as to outsmart

Oneself and break down

A social breakdown:

 

New friends new clubs

College Delly not pubs

The school I know

The rooms I know

 

Better not to yet leave
Until the end of this meet

Than to repeat failures past

And ignore time that’s passed

 

Whose school is this

I think it was missed –

It was missed I know

Still is home I know

 

Still is loved still is mine

I am doing just fine

I am loved I know

I am home I know.
