Homecoming

Caught in the fast spinning wild

Internal external guiding the ride

Agitation anxiety angst aloneness

Gripping fear as a thrownness

 

Even though I have resources

Don’t always stand to powerful forces

Suddenly funk washes over me

One minute coasting the next can’t see

 

Just when I’ve escaped

Not yet try this on your plate

What caused all the spinning

Approaching my ninth inning

 

Familial patterns thick as glue

Again home not yet thru

Memories not all pleasant yet seductive

Letting go of what I’m up against

 

Push and pull in the same breathe

That terrains’ not happiness

Truth I see reverse of sublime

Though longing for sweetness time upon time

 

What is your experience when visiting family?

Different from what you might like? What are

the expectations and can you let go of them?
