I was greeted to this campus


With “Welcome home”


So many times


That I naively assumed


I was safe to be myself.


 


I was told “You belong”


And I believed it,


Until I was “welcomed” with bitter stares,


Silently asking: Why are you here?”,


“What could you have to offer?”


 


Determined to provide answers,


I buried myself deep in work


Seeking the validation


I realized I never needed.



A home is never spoken into existence,


it’s fostered over time. 


I decided I would make my own


Like a robin building it’s nest,


Carefully tending to each twig,


Preparing for the weathering storms of spring
