Lost inside these thoughts of mine,
Thinking about those things you said,
And now all of it is coming true,
All that I secretly dread.
I’m lying to myself,
I know,I know,
The pain will come,
And then it will go.
I need to face the truth,
I need to find the strength,
I need to live for me,
I may smile a lot,
But there’s a lot you can’t see.
There’s a lot I pretend not to feel,
A lot that I don’t tell,
I keep the hurt hidden away,
Inside my heart, it will dwell.
In response to today’s daily prompt :
If you had the opportunity to live a nomadic life, traveling from place to place, would you do it? Do you need a home base? What makes a place “home” to you?
Hmm…a younger me would have said No Way! After changing 9 schools I wanted to settle down in one place. I am in Mumbai now, one of the best cities in India and yes, if i had to settle somewhere, I would want to settle here.
But I have also realized that there are a lot of places I want to see in random order:
– Bhutan – I celebrated my first birthday there but have zero memories of that place
– Tibet – Because of the Dalai Lama
– Machu Pichu, Peru – Do i need to even explain?
– Japan – Oh it is the country of my dreams
– Russia – Because i grew up on Russian folklore
Well those are just a few but yes, I wouldn’t mind being a nomad. And with my ability (no, i am not boasting, honest to God!) to make good friends wherever I go, I think I would do just fine. As long as I am not with strangers forever, even a new place can turn into a home.
