Read Poem: HOME, by NIY

They say the same thing that can kill you
Could probably even heal you
Oh but what do they know

When it comes around
Their eyes begin to lie
Creating a world only they can see

But is that so bad momma
A world true to my eyes
A world where emotion resigns
Serving us all some sort of potion
Hoping we’ll never get lost in the commotion

How come we haven’t seen it yet
How come you don’t believe in it yet

Sometimes its in the air
Waiting for you to gasp for it
Waiting for you to ask for it

Filling up the lungs
Looking for a place to cure
Getting lost just to find a home that’s near

I can feel it in my heart now momma
Do you think it’ll stay in the dark now momma
I think its found its home now momma
Will it ever leave me alone now momma
