Poetry – I Am Home

First steps onto the rough sands

I am home.

Smelling the campfire an’ cooking meat

The murky water and rough sand meet, battling for dominance

 I am home.

Familiar sounds and smells,

Looks and tastes…

Why does this wonderland seem so lonely when we go?

You are home, the wind whispers

 Who keeps the snakes and rotten spiders away?

Your protector,

Your guardian, the trees whisper.

The kookaburras laughed as I realised the truth…

I am home.

    Awesome poem! I love how you repeated “I am home” Throughout the poem. i Like how some lines are shorter then others, it is really effective.
