This is your true home

about a girl that haunts earth because she has no other home

The fire burns around me

I am going home

to where people say i belong

i look around

i see my brothers and sisters all around

I call out my fathers name

I do not shutter

when he appears

in front of me

he tells me

that he is ready for me

ready for me to stay home forever

with him

but when i enter through

the gates of hell

My one true father shuts them

and a light surrounds me

he tells me

that this is not my true home

that my home is with him

for years

they have fought

where I should stay

so still today

I am on land

haunting it.
