Poem About Searching For Yourself

I'm a college student who is working on her English degree but has had a hard time this past year with staying focused in school. I have always craved traveling and searching for something more out in the world. I wrote this poem for those who feel like me and don't believe they belong in one place, but rather in all the places in the world. I wrote this for people who want to touch the lives of others without forgetting about their own life.

Searching For Home

Published by Family Friend Poems June 2016 with permission of the Author.

Her eyes glowed with such ambition,
And her mouth spoke words of love and kindness.
She took pride in wandering;
She walked to find the places her heart longed for.
Oh, the places she searched to find her home.

She made her way through crowded paths
And swam through salted waters.
She danced in gardens
And sweetly kissed strangers.
She ran, she searched but still couldn't seem to find.

She failed to realize the lives she touched,
And the hearts she changed.
She failed to realize the home her heart longed for
Would never be found.
That the light she was chasing was not the world's.

That light, her home,
Had been following her footprints.
She had not realized
She had held it all along.
