where the heart is

Document

the first time i left,
i felt a lot
of different
emotions

mostly excitement,
but also
fear
happiness
sadness

i was eighteen
fresh-faced,
riding shotgun
in a mid-90s ford van,
looking out along
the highway

back then, almost
a year ago, now
i thought i was leaving
home

but i was wrong.

i found a new one,
a new family,
and even though home
had always been a house,

that day home
became something
different. new.

home became wherever
i was, as long as
i was with them
