My Home My Head

My Home My Head

Running along down this road
Don’t even know
Where to go
Walking around in the woods
Just because
I feel like I should
Do I walk, Do I hike
Do I ride in a car
Do I take a flight
My minds in a race
My heart keeps pace
Feels like a flight to outer space

But I’ve been at home this whole time
Because my home is in my mind
I see my mom
I see my dad
I see only good
I see no bad

One with the mother
We see eachother
I smile at her
She smiles at me
She lets me know just what to be
Even though I don’t know what to do
It doesn’t mean
That I’m through

I sleep every night
In my own bed
Because my home
Is in my head
I see my brother
I see my sister
Oh my
How I’ve missed her

Now I feel euphoric
I thank her for it
The sound of the wind
The feel on my skin
The deer and their tracks
The marks of the past
Because it’s all here right before us
The mother is here to condole us
