Man Who Stayed At Home (National Poetry Writing Month 2018 #2)   Leave a comment

I often like to ponder the man who stayed at home.
I wonder if I ever pass his mind while I roam?
While I wonder of the peaceful nights he spends with family,
Is he wishing he could have adventures on the sea?
I picture time together with those I most love.
He pictures endless oceans, with blue skies above.
I feel so jealous him, of the life he gets to live.
To end the day with those I cherish, oh what I wouldn’t give!

– Shaman Romney 2018

(Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt was to play around with voice. This poem is a companion to “Man Across The Sea”, written from the other perspective.)
