Reflecting Allowed

Maha Bali’s blog about education

(Anywhere But) Home



Where you belong

Where you’re always welcome

Where you run for safety

What conjures up warmth

A place to relax

To find unconditional love

But sometimes

It’s anywhere

But home

And you ask yourself

What have I done

To get here

Does home change on us

Do we grow out of our homes?

Do we grow away from our homes?

Does looking out for so long

Make it hard for your eyes

To adjust to what’s close?

Does thinking hard for so long

Make it hard for your heart

To remember how to feel again?

Does your identity evolve

So that belonging

In more than one space

Means belonging nowhere?

Can you still belong

To what used to be home

When you are no longer you

And home is no longer

The place you belong?
