    Where Is My Home?

    I used to think of my hometown as being home, but when I go back it no longer feels that way anymore - too much history for me there, and since me and my mother aren't speaking I feel I don't belong there. Where I live now doesn't feel like home either - mainly because of my...

    Need A Home

    Well me and my mom is a motel and don't know what tomorrow brings. Honestly I worry but not as much like I used to. I can say that. I am 22 years old and been working dead end jobs for awhile. Lord knows I'm trying.

    Since I'm a military kid,

    I've lived in about 5 different places so far, and I have no where to call home. So when people ask me where I'm from, it's really hard to answer lol.

    I just want to go home.

    I've moved so many times that I have no idea what or where to call "home". I have friends and family storing all my things for me, but I don't want to live out of a suitcase anymore. I want to feel relaxed and at home...once and for all.
