Home is a warzone

Find broken dreams and venom insults from lovers thrown

Like ammunition.

For years, fight merely for recognition.

Live in deliberate malnutrition.

Become delicate porcelain girl and plan your


Instead, spontaneously discover your chosen,

Your second home, the objects of your devotion.

Distance those who watched you waste.

Learn to smile,

Learn to reconcile,

Learn finally to embrace
