The need to fly off to another space. Is constant. Yet here I stand in Dorthy red shoes clicking. Thanking my lucky starts that took me back to where I belong. A drive away from hugs that walks of childhood realities.
Parents aging and sisters who care, colleagues who make me laugh to fear that learns. Amazing treasure in people that I could not fathom. In this city that I always knew but never saw.
Baltimore you underdog, how could I have not seen how stunning your eyes glow. I was looking to other shores. There you waited. Loving me even when I took off. The world cannot compare to what home holds.
