POV: You Grow Up and Leave Home

The front door separates two worlds. 

On one side, a life of warmth, comfort, and endless love. 

But this is not a life I created, it was handed to me,

Which I proudly enjoyed for years without batting an eye. 

Until now… 

Because on the other side of that door, it appears cold and scary. 

The silver lining is that somewhere…somehow outside this door,

I will build my own version of home.

A home brewed from my struggles and experiences. 

One that I hope provides a sliver of feeling I’ve enjoyed all these years.
