I believed I was home

I thought I found a place to call mine

I felt I belonged here

I thought I was finally free


I believed I was home

I had always longed to be here

I dreamt of it everytime my eyes were closed

I felt it was finally here


I believed I was home

But it was happening all again

I dreaded opening my eyes to reality

I couldn't help but feel bitter


I believed I was home

My long awaited happiness couldn't be ephemeral

My freedom couldn't be cut short

I felt all these were true


I believed I was home

What a pity it was only a fantasy

But I know I won't give up

I will try again till I find a place for me.
