A Place...

I was once lost in a place,
a place where I had to argue,
a place where I had to fight,
a place where I was a warrior.

I have been looking for a place,
a place where I can hide in and out,
a place where I can space in and out,
a place where I am silent and yet loud.

I am still looking for a place,
a place where people love without reason.
a place that is beautiful, and yet...unnamed.
