*I posted this on my Multiply account last March 23, 2010, which actually was unplanned. I wanted to post this after Jake finished composing the music for this. This would have been our first project together so I didn’t want to spoil the moment. But, knowing that only a few people get to visit my Multiply page, I think it wouldn’t really be a big deal. Besides, this poem has been lying around for some time and Jake’s still busy with work, so I guess that maybe it’s just about time to post it.*
I’ve travelled this long broken road
Aiming to reach a place called home
I walked many twist and turns
Wondering what lies beyond the bend.
I traversed miles and miles alone
Sometimes with people yet unknown
I’ve fought monsters big and small
Faced my fears and insecurities with courage unquenchable.
I did quests impossible and unimaginable
Encountered certain failures and downfalls
I struggled to rise above it all
And shared my victories with special people.
I’ve trudged along against all odds
Crossed paths with persons with hearts full of doubt
I’ve shed some blood and some tears
But never backed down for there’s always one who cheers.
I’ve endured countless trials and difficulties
With people who really cared and believed
I’ve had my taste of sorrows and regrets
And drank in the sweetness of bliss and relief.
Now the end of the road is near
My journey is coming to its close
I have done what I think is due
I believe that home is where I’m coming to.
