I came to find my idea of the land of Oz,
Where dreams are supposed to come true so easily.
Yet I monthly oscillate between joy and despair,
Because I approached my future so breezily.
People here in these buildings of chrome and glass
Rudely rebuff the daily offerings of my smiles.
Feelings of rejection and isolation engulf me,
As I walk these lonely streets for miles and miles.
I can almost see the yellow house where joy lived,
And I wish that I could replicate its wonders here.
I loved, in no particular order, the smell of mother’s pies,
My father’s sweet embrace, and laughing with my peers.
I’d light a fire in the mornings to warm my frozen heart,
And I would be welcomed home by its soothing light.
But, alas, for now, I am stuck in this heartless jungle,
Just trying to hold on to my sanity with all of my might.
