I WISH I HAD A HOME

A HOME OF MY OWN
has always eluded me
I have lived so many places in so many houses in so many countries
I lived in my car for 2 years in my early twenties
And lived on my boat in my mid thirties
I put a deposit on a doll’s house in a fine street once
But the sale got so confounded with difficulties + complications
My solicitor advised me to back out .
I convinced a bank to give me a loan to buy 2 huge adjacent blocks of land
In a distant exotic tropical coastal area that had a made road at the front + a beautiful beach running along the back fenceline thinking I would beachcomb.
But my family came down on me + created so much distress I didnt buy it.
2 years later the Hilton chain built a resort 400 metres up that same beach.
I would have been ecstatic to inherit the family home but it was never to be.
I would have loved my elderly mother’s little cottage where age caught her up ,
But she’s almost 96 now + had to sell everything to move into Aged Care.
Everytime an opportunity has been close to fruition I have allowed something to derail my ambitions to possess a hearth to call my own.
Nearly 40 years of rent later I am no closer
Providence,Willpower,Luck have all been somewhere else when I needed them.
Earnest hard work +pursuit of Self have been my priorities,
So I guess you mite say I have found a Home within myself
“Along the road to Mando lay !!”
