Where do you belong?

Where do you make your home,
and can you leave it?
To what or whom do you belong,
and is it worthy of your dignity?
What makes your heart swell --
and what makes it shrink?
When the rising tides
are lapping at your door
do you feel safe,
or do you cringe in fear?

If you know about global warming,
do you continue living at sea level?
If you know that love
can also bring
abandonment and pain,
do you choose to love anyway?

Where is your home?
Where -- really -- do you make your home?
