It takes courage to pack up and leave. It takes soul to be able to fall in love over and over again.
you are Love,
There are new city lights for you to get lost into
new rain to feel on your skin
the laughter as they walk by.
Strangers in the windows
chandeliers hanging from the roof.
And the only thing you own is a suitcase.
When the soil of your homeland is no longer beneath you
it is time to take care of yourself.
When you can’t depend on other people anymore
where there is no home but the one you build in you
it takes strenght to handle rejection.
Sometimes the pieces shatter
but you collect them together.
The time you spend looking out from the window when you are alone.
When you have so many ideas and thoughts bursting out of you but no one to share them with.
When nobody speaks your language,
you must try to understand, they try to understand you.
How do you make them laugh?
What did you expect?
Who you were when you left
you will not be the same.
You look inside yourself daily, give encouragement daily
you become strenght.
You become under the eyes of others.
You find the meaning of home is no longer having a home
you carry home with you
through all of this, it has stayed by your side.
For the life you are searching is within you.
You don’t need saving.
I see you
the mountains see you.
The footprint you left in the soil back then.
It’s all there.
Just for living through all those moments, I salute you.
Let there be travel.
