Homecoming

By Jamari Jordan

 

The victor returns home from his travels

Yet, things just aren’t the same as it once was

Activities which were once joyous, now just bore

Memories which left one full, now have left a hungering for more

 

Sadly, home just isn’t home anymore

The couch just isn’t as comfortable

The laughs just don’t last as long as before

The smile just isn’t as wide anymore

 

This house now feels like an extended visit

A place I can come back to, but never can I call it my own again

See, after you see the world, the idea of home changes

Love remains, but the pedestal for which it was placed is gone
