I Live in a Far Away Place By Jasen Sousa

I Live in a Far Away Place


I’ll never forget
the way they rushed in
and intruded my space.
That’s why I live
in my far away place.

I’ll never reveal
the place where I hide,
my far away place where I reside.
It’s a place
where I don’t have to be alarmed,
those who harmed me, I will never have to fear.
I got in my car and drove,
kept my foot on the gas
not knowing which way to steer.

Disappearing
in my rearview mirror, the city streets
which kept me walking in a maze.
Finally, on my skin, the long arms of the sun’s rays.

I have been on the move
for many days.
Not looking for my new home, my new home will find me.
A peaceful paradise
where beauty will blind me.

The sadness, there is none in my far away place
which will remind me.
A fresh start, a new heart.
When I first seen it, never would have been able to dream it,
coming from inside, the strumming of harps.

I arrived
just as it was turning dark.
I saw a blue jay sitting on a stone.
I live in a far away place
and it is the first time in my life I feel like I am home.
