595 Finding My Home [03 March 2004]

in the mystery
that is my life
I’ve endured my own ignorance
blind to what is before me

I’ve wandered many places
trying to find the key
that will unlock the door
to my inner sanctum

dreams of love, happiness
elude me on this path
always sought and desired
only to never find the true vessel

until one day
I wandered in to a room
filled with ancient katanas
and a language that held my imagination.

my heart broke open
and a song, a lovely, soul-wrenching melody
burst forth, filling that room
and harmonizing with the tune already playing

I had found a home
for this strange person I am
a place where I could be
the only thing I ever wanted to: Me
