"Homeland" - By Maura

Going back to the homeland once again.
So tired of this journey,
the soul longing
driving me away
driving me back
then away again.

The pull tightens
and stretches in two directions
in my souls search for love.

Untie the ropes!

Throw them into the deep blue sea,
Leave me free of bondage
of the clinging searching rope that binds me.

Let them roam freely
where I will
with joy and peace.

Bound to no one
except myself
and the great cosmos.

Lift my sorrow from the oceans depths
to the rising sun
where creation bursts forth boldly.

Held back by no man or beast
to radiate brilliantly
who I am.
