Home – Little Poem #29

image

Home is not a house,
Not a city, state, country,
or any of the time zones.

Home is where my soul sighs,
Where I can rest my broken bones.

All my life we have been shifting. I have studied in 10 schools and lived in about 8 cities and roughly 12 houses. ‘Home’ for me is wherever my family is, irrespective of space or time. Because only they have been truly constant.

Who or where is home for you?

      2. Glad that someone reality misses my presence…
        I believe you are awesome, that is the reason as soon as I read your article I can’t stop commentingπŸ˜„πŸ˜„!
        Procrastination is so common among students πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ.
        End of the day you rock the exam.. All the bestπŸ˜„πŸ˜„

  1. I never had the luxury of having a constant family or friends, for that matter. To me, home is myself, my own serenity, my own resilience, my own safety, my own place to rest my head in utter silence without the fear pf having my space infiltrated.

    1. I totally agree with you. We are truly comfortable in our own skins. The space within is sacrosanct. It is unique and personal. And that is what makes you ‘You’.
      It is admirable to see that you have the strength, because it does take immense courage to be the only one for oneself. Kudos to you! πŸ™‚

      1. Thank you. Most people I know don’t know how to be alone or to establish the necessary space needed to learn how to be self-aware.

      2. Same here. I feel it is crucial to differentiate between alone and lonely. I prefer to be alone and spend time with myself because self reflection is essential to growth.
        Our generation is too engrossed in superficial narcissism that they cannot go beyond instant grattification.

      3. My thoughts exactly! I feel lonely regardless of whose in my life, but I have pride that I’ve grown accustomed to myself, that I’m not running away from anything or in distress anymore. I always compare myself to Batman. Lol. But yeah, a lot of people I know want to feel they belong, but I never cared for popularity. They feel like they must please people in order to create a foundation for their existence. But it lies in oneself.

      4. Totally agree with you. Seems like we have a lot in common. The Dark Knight is the perfect allegory!
        It is not easy to find a meaning for identifying ourselves within ourselves which is why most people look outwards and get looped into what they think defines them.
        I am glad to see I am not the only one who feels this way!

      5. The feeling is indeed mutual. This is why I love blogging. It makes sense to come across other intellectual people in intelligent venues.

  2. Home for me is a beautiful reunion of family, where we sit together and talk over stuffs ( no matter how stupid they maybe)..
    But in a year I will have to leave my family and start a new college life, which I am really worried about.
    But I believe as long as family is there with us… everything is just going to be fine!πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

    1. Aww. Varsha. I agree with you. Family time can be about nothing and yet it means everything.
      I have been living away from my family for the past 2 years and though I have gotten used to it, their absence still pinches me.
      Wishing you all the very best for your college life. Your family will always be there for you. I hope you make wonderful friends, the pseudo family as we call it, are equally important. Take care! πŸ˜€

      1. Yes rhey do. The friends you will make in your hostel life will be very different from other friends, because you live with them. That is another level of understanding and trust that normal friendships dont always have.
        I am sure your hostel life will be spectacular! πŸ˜€
