Prompt 24–Home

I moved from home
not thinking I would miss it

34 years, and as long as I remained close to Mama
I knew I was home
Now, nothing feels like it
Why did I move away again?

Any place that had Mama there
was home
Living within her before
I ever lived anywhere else

Growing up and memories
the step count
home structure

eating mama’s cooking
celebrating holidays

Mama’s presence
will always a requirement for home
