The castle of your heart

The castle of your heart

You are like a traveller who

for years has journeyed across foreign lands

you have climbed mountains and crossed deserts

and found some places of beauty, and other of ugliness and strife

you’ve overcome many ambushes

and your feet are weary

and in your heart there’s a very deep longing

that gets stronger and stronger as you journey on your way back home

for it’s all fine to explore the world but after a while

you realize there’s no where you can be as happy

as in the castle of your heart
