It was a beautifully written note. I could feel your sense of not belonging. I could hear the pain in your words caused by the change of who you are becoming. Most of the time change is for the better, but can be very confusing and does create a sense of loss. I have heard it said that ‘You can never go home once you have left’. I am not sure if those are the exact words used. But it is close enough! Here are my thoughts on the subject. It is not so much that you cannot go home, but that ‘home’ will never feel the same. It is a part of our transition into adulthood. The more you find out about yourself away from home, the more ‘home’ becomes distant in your mind…yes, like the Emerald City. However, remember you originated and have come from the Emerald City with a heart, courage, an awesome brain, and a home waiting for the butterfly to return that has emerged from its cocoon. You are that butterfly. This is your time for emerging. This is your time. Do not fall asleep in the poppy field. Stay awake and enjoy every moment. Yes, you might go through some pain, some feelings of loss, some moments of not belonging—but remember they are growing pains. At this moment in time you are still tethered to your home, yet learning to fly alone. One day, you will find your own home. But know that through all of this change, you are never alone. You still have a home, a place to rest. And what a wonderful home it is.

Near the End
Alone again her heart is dying
Weeping inside her soul is crying.
Facing the reflection in the water
Shattered by what life had brought her.
Looking back on mistakes she made
Hope and happiness begin to fade.
Drifting into a black abyss
Seeing just dark and loneliness
Falling deeper the end is near
Her eyes no longer shed a tear.
All at once she sees a light
Then a voice cries out, Please fight!
A familiar presence she knows so well
What could it be? She cannot tell.
She opens her eyes to see a face
Within the arms a warm embrace.
He speaks to her in a gentle tone
Fear not, you are no longer alone.
She asks in wonder, Are you my Savior?
Will I be forgiven of my behavior?
Smiling to this he did reply
I do not judge nor ask you “Why?”
Searching for answers she looked around
Why did you save me before I drowned?
He said to her in a whispering voice,
I could not help it, I had no choice.
For I too have been near the end
Now I come to you as a friend.
Happy Mother's Day

|Oh, Mother, where art thou?|
My wish for all mothers: I hope you have a safe, joy-filled day with your children.
If that is not possible, then remember to look up. Look at the sky, the trees; feel the warmth of the sun and the breeze upon your skin. Look beyond the clouds and imagine what lies behind them, blocking your view. It is an amazing universe for which we have much to be thankful.

I see life passing by, like raindrops from the sky.
I try to catch the wind; instead, it sweeps me in.
It swirls out of control, as I keep growing old.
Some days I wonder why, life won’t just let me die.
Instead I must go on, and face each day unarmed.
Why does life seem so cruel, a never-ending duel.
Pondering life’s reasons, with every passing season,
Trying to live each day, not knowing what to say,
Needing to be saved from, a hopeless urge to run.
There is no place to go, I cannot hide and so—
I face each day alone, feeling I don’t belong.
I know it’s bound to end, God only knows just when.
