    <<<<Home is where the heart is, but my heart isn’t here
    its somewhere distant, calling me to come near
    Staying in one spot, is the only thing I fear
    So I fight to get out this box thats trapping me with my peers

    I don’t know where I’m headed, only time will tell
    I’m in the middle of my journey and I’m waiting for my wings to propel
    My mind is on the mission, the mission is to sail
    I’ll sail on a ocean, with tides and waves that might cause me to fail

    Might be in cali, where the sun is glistening
    Or it might be in Detroit, where the winter snow and rain be drizzelin
    Could even be in ATL, Houston, New York, haven’t made the decision
    But honestly, I believe I’m from Heaven, I’m just down here visiting

    I believe there's something bigger & better, I dont belong here
    I know no place is perfect, but yo, its plain wrong here
    everyone knows everyone and still dont get along here
    my name and business get tossed like ping pong here

    My fam wants me to stay and my friends dont believe that ill make it
    But i see the vision, they just need their eyes dialated
    I know these are my roots, but I cant lie, I hate it
    I just wanna finish this year and escape this...

    I just wanna find a home...

    i know my journey was to be earthly bound
    but i am from above and some day i shall
    return home.

    I've felt this way all my life too:

    I believe there's something bigger & better, I dont belong here


    But I know you'll make it, girl. With all my heart I do. Love to read this but I liked it better when you read it to me. :)

    i love this i get like this at times..
    it passes by but i know
    i will find my home too...
    upwarded bound i know in time...
    but for now i fly low and surface at times
    but indeed we all will find that one place
    where we belong...
    pray my child and the answer you will recievce....
    but this is my view...
