Next is a poem by another Write On! regular Palak Tewary:

I Carry You With Me

It’s not a place for me
It’s not a sight that I see
It’s not the possessions that I possess
And it’s most definitely not an address

It’s not a smell that I smell
It’s not a word that I spell
It’s not the sounds that I hear
And it’s most definitely not how I appear

It is buried deep inside
It is always along for the ride
It is what sets me free
Home is what I carry within me
