Home isn't made of walls and doors,
nor place with deeds or frequent chores,
but where the breeze blows evermore
with fields of green for one to explore.

 

A place where dirt becomes one's own floor
and the flora and fauna ceaselessly implore
you to take off into the unknown and explore
the habitat's belongings of species galore;
nothing it beholds can serve an eyesore.

 

A place where the water will endlessly pour
into crystal reserves with grass ridden shore
and plenty of things for one to adore;
the flowers and fish are the only decor
as the winged wildlife, above, will soar.

 

A place where sleep can release it's snore
and have it hidden by leaves that bore
a soft, gentle whisper many years before,
without interruption of raging furore
that continues on to this day, and more.

 

A place where it's noise does not abhor,
but resonates with one's very own core,
leaving the soul hoping for an encore.
Much farther away from the hectic uproar
than the sorry excuse for escape that lies indoors.

 

A place where the thoughts are not ravaged by war
on small scale or large; where one can ignore
the usual things that would make one feel sore
or fuming fierce rage out of every pore
only reconciled by a frustrated roar.

 

A place that bears the name "outdoors,"
away from all of the disgusting gore
of humanity riddled with bloodstained lore;
away from where minds can produce a score
of reasons to look at the world and deplore.

@Your_Apathetic_Basketcase Thank you so much! It makes me feel so amazing that you were moved by this piece, and I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Thank you so much for showing your appreciation, it means the world to me especially coming from you. I've read through plenty of your work and I love it, so hearing from somebody I respect and look up to is absolutely flabbergasting. You're an amazing writer as well, and I hope you never give up! It's kinda funny how you mentioned burning everyone and everything down to the ground, as I've had a short moral-esque short story planned in the background of my thoughts for a bit. Also, you're not spamming me, any contact is welcome. Last of all, but certainly not least, I would love to work on something with you in the future! I think with your help something absolutely beautiful can come to fruition. For what we would be doing, what would you have in mind? A short story? a poem? Anything will do and I'd certainly love to collaborate, just let me know! Also, you can message me on Instagram (same username as my TeenInk account) to keep in touch if you'd like to discuss it further. Thank you again! :)

@Patrick82432 Okay. You had commented on my work, and here I am on yours, literally in tears, this was so beautifully written. I can't even describe into words what I feel right now, because you have done the near impossible by making me actually cry with how truly powerful these words you had written on here were. Patrick. I want you to keep writing, and I want you to never, ever stop. I see fantastic things in your future, things that most writers dream of having. YOU have that fire within you. I want you to burn everyone, everything down to the ground until they see your work and wave the white flag of surrender, your work is truly inspiring. I am spamming you, I apologize, I will go haha. I just wanted to say that to you. You will get published. If you want to work on something with me, let me know. :)
