I once thought I could only be
happy on the other side of the horizon.
Where the grass was greener
and the seas were so much bluer.
Wherever I was…
I wanted to be somewhere else.
Whoever I was with…
they were never the right one.
Whenever I saw the snow,
had snowball fights and
made snowmen,
I wished for the white sand
and to take a swim
on tropical beaches.
Happiness was harder
and harder each day.
The horizon was further
and further away.

(It’s just an
imaginary line
and you can never
never ever
reach it.)

I realized I can be happy anywhere.
If I call it home.
The grass sometimes is tall
and the sea if far away.
But there’s no place like home
and no one quite like myself.
I miss the snow.
The water here is freezing.
But happiness is so easy.
And the horizon is just a line.
Firstly, number 19 (Home) of my 100 Theme Challenge. This actually started from this old thing I used to say, that I could only be happy on the other side of the horizon. And today, I stopped and realized I don't feel like that anymore. And the rest is there... on the poem.

 Love it! And I totally understand that feeling... Home is where you decide to make it. I also really like the cadence of the words (if that makes any sense, because they don't rhyme... I like how you built the verses!)

Thank you again! I did let the words just flow and I'm lucky the verses turned out alright! xP
And I'm very glad you liked and also that the message speaks to you =D
