Going Home

This weekend I am going home…
Back to the hood of things…so to speak…
I left my hometown thirty years ago…
Never to return…not really…
I have always visited…
When my mom was ill…
I was there sometimes weekly…
But the prodigal daughter…
Never really returned…
Every now and then…
Someone would see me and say…
“Girl where you been…Mars?”
I would always smile….saying…
“Almost”
The biggest compliment was always…
“You are still the same…”
I loved hearing that…
But this weekend…
With my three books in hand…
I am going home….
Ocala’s Own acVernon Menchan…
What will it all mean?
If anything…
I really don’t know…
But it’s time…
No matter how far we stray…
What we may do…
The day will come…
When we all return home…
It’s necessary….
