Home is in the faces on my wall

Home is in the letters from loved ones

Home is in FaceTime calls and “I miss you” texts


I search for Home in fresh faces and conversations

I search for Home in walks around campus

I search for Home in shared meals and How are you?’s


Searching for Home in new places feels unfamiliar

But Home is Home.


I once thought Home was a place

Perhaps where I grew up

Perhaps where I have yet to live

I once thought Home was in a single person

Perhaps someone understanding

Perhaps someone close

I once thought Home was far away

Sometimes it feels that way

But I can take home with me wherever I go


Home is in memories

Home is in people

Home is in nature

Home is all around

and Home is in me
