For years, I have been away from home. I come and go at my own accord. This year seems a bit different. Eight months have made me homesick, wanting my longest vacation to never end! But, it is what it is!
But, I dare not open the door this time. Scanning around for the last time, the silence like the turbulent sea broke against my ear and I lose a part of myself in those memories of cheerful laughter and fun.
I calm myself, smile at my kin and step out. Goodbye, my dear home.
