Where I Belong

Wilderness isn't all just fresh air and blue skies.
It is a home.
A home where your brothers and sisters are the wildest of animals.
Where your aunts and uncles are the tallest of trees.
Your grandparents are the sugar coated mountain tops.
Your nieces and nephews are the smallest saplings.
A place where your father is Father Time, and your mother is Mother Earth.
So when I leave my suburban surroundings, and come to this supposed "wasteland",
I am not leaving home, but I am coming home... Where I Belong.
