This is Home

"I've got my memories
Always in side of me
But I can't go back,
Back to how it was..."

It's all forward from here. So much has changed. I have changed. Where I've come from has shaped me into who I am now. But there's no going back. What was is past. This is now and this is beautiful.

"Belief over misery
I've seen the enemy
And I won't go back
Back to how it was..."

Some have tried to stop me, to prevent me from getting here. I've gone down the wrong paths and had to back up further than where I started. I've been blinded by false whispers disguised as truth, and waylaid by villians disguised as heroes.

"Created for a place I've never known...
This is home,
Now I'm finally where I belong...
This is home,
I've been searching for a place of my own
This is home..."

I always tried to imagine my story. How would it end? Who would still be in it? Where would I be? How would it begin? But this, I never could have imagined. Instructed in honesty, rescued by real heroes, lifted to my feet by the truest of companions, I've found where I belong. A place a never knew existed, people I never expected. This is home, indeed.

"I've got a brand new mindset
I can finally see the sunset,
I'm gonna call it home..."

(Song lyrics from "This is Home" by Switchfoot)
