Homing
By Virginia A.


I know the roads that take me there
all the highways and byways
that lead to the Heartland
land of my heart, my home.

My soul is rooted in that prairie soil;
tear me up and transplant me —
no matter how far I might travel
you’ll find me still in the Heartland
land of my heart, my home.

There are pieces of me scattered across the plains;
I’m following the path of their dispersion
gathering them back together,
bringing them here to the Heartland
land of my heart, my home.

I know the place I was born in
the same place I will die in;
All roads lead to the Heartland
land of my heart, my home.
