This is My Home

This is my sanctuary
My place of refuge
My escape
This is where I hide when the world
Gets to be too much for me
This is my hiding place
My safe house
My island retreat
This is where I escape when I feel
That I do not want to be seen
This is my coffin
My standing tombstone
My convergence
This is my resting place, for once my life ends
This is all that will remain
This is my theater
My library
My study
This is the dwelling that I return to every day
To prepare for what comes next

…This is my home.
