oakland, 8 (what i know)

this place echoes
all the best things
of the places
i have been before

a different set of faces here
with a similar spirit
equally loving
equally lovable

i am finding a kind
of peace of here
with a similar
kind of restlessness

there is no place
i ever intend to call
the best i’ve ever had

there is no one
i would ever trade
for all the ones
i’ve ever known

i have been blessed
with a wealth of places
and a wealth of people
i can call home.
