Welcome, Home

This is my home,
A place that thrives on community and looks to serve its environmental duties.
This is where I have chosen to live,
A city that was built on whores and now lives for beer pours.
This is a place I see value in,
A home within reach of the mountains, fresh air, and the beach.
This is a place where I belong,
Where the intellects thrive with artists and everyone has a different view on politics.
This is the place that called to me,
With its forests and trees, and a promise to be free.

And for once in my life,
This is where I have chosen to lay roots,
And I chose to break the cycle of of movement,
I chose to face my fears and commit,
Because this community is too strong to not see value in,
And this unique point of view on life is something I want to embrace,
And in any case this is where I’ve signed a lease,
And this is where I’ve made promises to stay,
Until the wind blows me a different way,
But for now I embrace the play and love another day,
In this place where I want to stay,
In suspended adolescence,
A place where I believe dreams do come true,
In the city I dare to call Home.
