HOMELAND

A series of six works with written text

HOME-LAND

 

Homeland

Is neither a Home nor a Land

It is the Womb

From where you are born

With its warm or cold nature,

The language

You first hear and use to express

Your very first desires and thoughts,

It's the story you are told

About your parents and ancestors

And the God or Gods

You are urged to believe in

And trust,

 

Homeland is the Landscapes

That live in your mind and soul

With their unique weather and seasons

That influence your mentality

Shape your behavior

Your temper

Your moods

And

Your humor.
