Like Coming Home

cover-like-coming-home-01

I want to know about homesickness. I want to know that my handwriting reminds me of my mother. I want to know that chocolate reminds me of Sunday mornings.

I want to know if there will ever be a day when I don’t miss home. I want to know that the answer will always be no.

I want to know that leaving home is a pit in your stomach. I want to know that leaving anything is hard and that leaving something good is terrible. I want to know how to leave with grace; I want to know how to return with grace. I want to know that I am trying.

I want to know that some days I am homesick and some days I think I must be exactly where I need to be.

I want to know that some days are not the best days but I am still made kinder and bolder because of them. I want to know that everyday my capacity to love and to be kind grows. I want to know that the difference between happiness and anger is a choice. I want to know that this choice is never made for you. I want to know that I am learning.

I want to know that when I asked God to make me happier, he made me more loving instead.

I want to know that some days it feels bittersweet to change, but that most days it feels like coming home. •

CROSS STATE LINES

cross state lines 1

drive for miles

and miles

until you get somewhere

that’s not home.

don’t stay your whole life

where you were born.

don’t never leave

that small town.

let the paved roads lead you

out of the world you’re used to.

stop getting comfortable.

stop settling in.

leave at some point.

cross state lines until you

find the answers.
