Belong.

I want to belong somewhere
Even in my own home, I’m hiding in corners

I want to belong somewhere
Like how my books belong on my shelf
Like how my clothes belong in my closet

I want to belong somewhere
Where I don’t feel like slipping
Where I don’t feel the need to hide

I just want to belong somewhere
Where I feel the most loved
And my thoughts occupied
Not by my lonely thoughts
But by happy conversations
Where I feel that my affections are not wasted
And are reqruited
