My Home

Written by: Desiree Gapuz

I live in a shabby place
Where everything falls into disgrace
The longer you look at me
The harder you’ll see

I am from this tiny coast
Where fears grow the most
The softer you speak to me
The better I shall be

I am destined to live in this domicile
Where everybody seems hostile
Feelings for them don’t matter
The pain won’t get better
