That At-Home Feeling

by Belinda Munoz on January 14, 2011

4936900275_772a593430Fear stopped him.
That’s what everyone thought.
He could’ve had fame, fortune.
He was destined for success.
Nobody understood why he didn’t claim it
when most others could only dream.
He chose a different path.
Sometimes, he had doubts.
But everytime he wandered,
his heart would long for that feeling,
leading the way back home.


Friday Flash 55 for The G-Man.

Do you ever long for that at-home feeling beyond the comforts of your physical home?

Belinda, lovely poem. Fame and fortune don’t get you there. I love feeling at home in my own skin, heart and life. xo

I can relate totally to this!
Some things are far more important than fame and fortune!
Loved your 55 My Friend…
Also…What a stunning Photo!
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End…Galen

I may not be destined for greatness, but I know the feeling of wandering too far from the mountains and having to come back.

Lovely,Belinda. There is no place like home in our heart.

Gorgeous photo! Loved your 55. There really is no place like home — another cliche, but a good one :)

Every day, my friend. Every day.

oh belinda – i liked this – and i know this feeling quite well…no place like home…and it doesn’t have to be an existing place – it’s finding home in your heart for me..

That’s why they say, “Home is where the heart is.”

Nice 55!

Beautiful pic – and love the story. It could evolve into so much more and yet it’s complete as is.

What a terrific 55. We have all experienced feeling.

Stunning photo,

wonderful perspective — many people get lost on that road, the lucky ones find their way back.

nicely crafted.

Really lovely. I think most of us search for “home” – in ourselves, in a place, in a sense of belonging.

Love this Belinda. Stunning words and great pic. Home is concrete and transient all at the same time.
