    Home is to where my heart has ventured
    Unaware of any overt quixotic/rhapsodic expectations
    And yet, my soul anticipates rather eagerly
    The feel of my toes, dancing merrily/mirthfully
    To the cacophony of sounds
    Indigenous to the MOTHER CONTINENT
    As my feet trudge forth
    In her cool, wet EARTHINESS!

    Visions of her inhabitants
    Past/present, yet to come
    Brothers, mothers, sisters, fathers, neices, uncles ,nephews, aunts, as well as cousins
    All of whom are centuries removed from my presence
    And still, our lives carry on
    Akin to the rising of the sun, and the setting of the moon
    Likened also to, the eternal flame
    Never diminishing...consistently burning brighter!

    Thusly, as my approach to HOME draws nearer still
    Incalcluable are the number of lives
    Which are interwoven through griot-like tales and anecdotes
    That NO others could explain to me the origin of
    And yet, no amount of time passing or time yet to come
    Could tarnish their importance to my very existence!

    Truly THANKFUL is what I genuinely am
    At the prospect of THE CREATOR
    Allowing me to journey here
    In my mind's eye
    Causing me to celebrate with unbridled joy
    The moment when HE actually sends/takes me HOME!!
