Homecoming

Been away for a while
A few rough patches
But well, I’m all right
See, all my knowing
And all my not knowing
Got me to my sanctuary
Maybe finally a better place
A place I could call home

While away, I wandered
Along deep empty streams
Praying for the unknown
Perhaps hoping to find mine
That will quench this undying thirst
Hoping the tides would be just
In the distance, I heard a throbbing
But the river never flowed

I hit my foot hard on a rock
Then suddenly I knew
It was never coming
At least not while I waited
Then a wicked thought
What if it never ever flowed?
Was I doomed to die of thirst?
That was no way to die

It’s the easiest thing ever
To get lost while searching
Hoping they finally get it
What it all means to you
Maybe feel the magic
Harboring in your soul
Even see it possible, wonders
Of your wildest imagination

My not knowing got me knowing
That there was nothing to find
The strolling got me anxious
Was further lost than found
Along the dry river was me
And I had me to survive
So I made an about turn
The turn that got me home.
