A journey near and far in a time and place I thought I’d never be and certainly would never leave now onto a place known only to those in the know and deserving. Who you wonder might the deserving be? We are not the entitled, we are not the aristocrats, and we are not the nose turners and crowd pleasers. We are however, the hard workers, the volunteers, the ones left behind, the ones forgotten. We found a place where the door only opens for the likes of we. This place is full of endless tomorrows, and filled without sorrows. We’re basking in the glow of heartfelt splendor gifted to us free and clear. A journey near and far with hope filled dreams, absent of our sins. Loyalty becomes our new skin, Here our blood may not be connected, but we live as one kin to another. It is the tie that binds us. This journey near and far in a time and place I thought I’d never be is now the only home I’ll ever again see. Are you entitled to this journey with me?
