My Homeland Lies Elsewhere

We have a world where being different is not cool in reality. Conforming to ideals and ideas that come from cruelty and hate seems to be expected. People who you thought were your neighbors are the ones wanting to harm you instead. Waving a flag just because you are expected to or obeying the words of leaders who seek to cause people more harm than good is not what some folks signed up for well they were born into it so they don’t have much choice in the matter.

My friends, my homeland lies elsewhere

I dream of a place where people are allowed to be their authentic selves. Space so they can breathe and dream and hope and love with passion. A time where they can live long days and nights with little cares in the world. Where people will do no harm and legislate how we are to live our lives. May we find this place sooner rather than later. May it come in our day. No matter our gender, sexuality, religion, politic, ethnicity, race and all the other labels may everyone have a home to call their own and a seat at every table. This is where I want to call home.
