Let's take a quick look and see,
What treasures are hiding under this tree,
A shiny silver locket shaped as a heart,
Sitting in a miniature shopping cart,
"How odd," you say,
"This is certainly not the place you should stay",
So you take it home and show your mom,
She says she'll help you put it on,
You say "No",
"That certainly is not the place it should go"
"If not there;
then where?"
Without a word you zip out the door,
With no idea what you're headed for,
Searching for the perfect spot,
To stow away this locket you got,
You run all around,
And soon you fall to the ground,
In tears you say,
"I can not find a place for this locket to stay"
That's when you realize that all along,
It had been in the place where it belonged,
Covered by the safety of the tree,
That's where the locket needed to be

The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this poem because I moved away from my family to live with my friend. After living with my friend for about 2 months I realized that my home town was where I needed to be.
