Grandma & Grandpa’s House

I’ve been many people here.
I’ve been wise, 

I’ve been fearless,

I’ve been stupid,

I’ve been aimlessly in love,

and I’ve been naive.
This is home, where I get to be.

All of who I once was, am, and can be.
From the ceiling to the floor, pictures.

I realize I’m taller. 

I realize the reflection is different in the mirrors.

I realize the comfort that flows over me.

I realize the relaxation that comes over me.

I realize, I needed this

more than you can possibly believe.
A place to breathe.
