Yes_This Is The Place

I Belong

There's a secret place

Sitting near a creek shore

Each time I go there

I enjoy it more than before.

A place where birds

Often chirp sweet songs

Seemingly telling me

This is the place I belong.

A place away from rigid

Schedules that always worry me

All those dreadful sounds

Of saws destroying trees.

A place I can observe a sunset

While standing quietly alone

Admiring the assorted colors

To remember after they're gone.

Watching a majestic sunrise

Slowly pushing nighttime away

Is another beautiful phenomenon

I can enjoy everyday.

Yes_ this is the place I belong.
