Can't Find My Way Home

Did you ever feel that you belonged?
Wherever your roots were planted?
Did you wonder if things could be alright?
If just one of your wishes were granted?

You only know one way of life,
You never knew it was any different
Than anyone else in this great big world,
This is how your life has been spent.

But you do know one thing for sure;
That your heart does not know love,
Your head would say that this is ok
But inside you did not know love.

You have no home, no sacred space,
A place to feel safe and secure.
There are no gentle arms to hold you,
No protector to help you endure.

They often say that ignorance is bliss,
What you don’t know will not hurt you.
You only wish that this was a fact,
But you know it isn’t really true.

You are like a lost soul searching,
Never really knowing where to look;
Or even knowing what you need.
Your life is an old, sad book
You find it easier to live day to day,
Watching the dark tide turn to foam.
To stop worrying about what might have been,
No longer trying to find your way home.
