Home is Where the Heart Is

When I think of home, I think of a safe place
A place to take refuge
I think of happiness and family
I smell noodles out of the wok, love fresh in the air, and burning Patchouli from my mom’s room
I see a messy house, with my things scattered around
I feel messy, scattered with feelings like anger, sadness
But at the end of the day, the emotions are gone
And somehow we all get along
I know that home is a place to be myself
Home is a place that I can come back to
Home is safe, away from this pandemic
But we need to stay in them, not seeing our friends
I just wish this COVID-19 was put to an end
