Once upon a time, a girl went in search of her place.
She searched high and lo, and yet couldn’t find where she fit.
She tried to be with the people that surrounded her.
Yet she felt separate.
She traveled to different places,
Yet nothing felt like home.
She attempted to shape relationships from dry sand,
Only to watch them crumble.
She found herself alone once more,
Tears flowing down her cheeks.
As she sat by a river’s stream,
She thought about accepting defeat.
Just then she caught a glimpse of her reflection,
She looked closer and realized,
She needn’t search any longer.
She was home.
