I am finally home
my light brown shirt
dark and sticking to my skin
with the sweat from the long walk.
I am finally home
standing at my front door
the sun low behind me
and newspapers piled high
I am finally home
these feet are bloodied
the soles worn bare
but I am finally home
the wandering and wondering
have come to end
and my heart shakes with
the thought of my own bed
