Words and Music #2: Where is Home? (A Poem)

Inspired by the Cloud Atlas End Title

Where is home? 

Nothing stays still.

Usually I run towards the horizon,

and time plays tag with me

Pulling me forward, and forward

And forward. One day, I think, I’ll say: tag!

But I’ll be tagged myself, and it will be time to leave this world. 

But sometimes I pause.

I catch my breath.

Where is home? 

I look around me, and I admire the travellers

And their tents of beauty, love and pain.
