A year ago I wrote about how I was moving. I recently rewrote it with my new perspective.
I don't want to cross those mountains
I don't want to see their peaks
My life is only here
In this beautiful, flat land
With no mountains to see

I've been dragged from my home
Into this unfamiliar place
Mountains surround me on every side
Separating me from my past
I want to run back to it
Yet I know I would still be lost

It's almost been a year now
I have a partner that I love
And friendships that'll last years
I miss that old flat land
But I don't want to lose this
For this is now my home
No longer lost in those mountain peaks
