All I Want

All I want is to be with you,
Across the sea in a land so new

Where resides my heart with you,
I should be there with you too

Stuck here on this rock of rain,
I don’t want to be here again.

There’s only one place I want to be
There with you in the land of the free.

Thought for the Day – Displacement

Although this is called ‘Thought for the Day’, which may be suggestive of it being part of a series, it is not. This is really just an isolated post, and since this thought consumes me, could be considered the ‘Thought of the Day’ for all days. Well, until it isn’t.

Ever felt completely displaced, both temporally and spatially? That is how I feel right now. Forced to exist in a location and time zone that just feels completely alien. Nothing around me seems to make sense. Everything just looks wrong, feels wrong. It seems as if the sun rises and sets at all the wrong times, and that there is no longer any order to the world. I know that this will change when I am in the location and time in which I belong, where my heart is, my home. Until that time I know that nothing will feel right.

Ever felt that way?
