What do you call a home? – Megha Sood

“If light is in your heart

You will find your way home.”

― Jalaluddin Rumi

What do you call a home?

where you lose yourself

your soul rests in peace

or Is it a place of refuge

from the anger, hurt, pain and anxiety?

 

What do you call a home?

where you are alone with your emotions

naked .. stripped of all the lies

where there is no rush, no chaos.

 

What do you call a home?

Where every piece of the puzzle

just falls right into its place

after being lost in cheap delirium

the social awkwardness,

where you come finally

to strip off yourself

of all the fake identities.

 

What do you call a home?

where there is no finish line to cross

you are always a winner

just for reaching home

where you sins finally comes to rest

and soul stop resisting all the happiness

gives in to the peace and calmness.

 

What do you call a home?

where you can wrap yourself

around with your whimsical illusions

and sleep peacefully

to let the dreams conceive again.

 

Have you found your home yet?

–Megha
