“Home”

Home Contest High School Honorable Mention

By Paisley Adams / Ligonier, PA / 12th Grade

every place my foot falls, is home
whether verdant green or lost in snow
where the leaves cascade
on their frigid parade
and the buds of new life show

every place the road goes, is my home
from bustling town to  pastures far
under city street lights
or firefly flights
huddled under every star

every place people go, is my home
both long vacation and work day
all those mountains to climb
so I work overtime
it feels like home either way

every place the heart yearns, is home
all those small hopes in Pandora’s box
the world is our home
so let the truth be known
we have the key to all locks
