Analysis

The poem reflects the thoughts of Khola about that what she searched for. At least, so it seems. The metaphor of a turbulent sea reflects a time of despair and unrest. It is that moment when she felt at ease from the chaos that tormented her soul.

Homecoming means returning home. In her poem, home isn’t a house or place where you live. It is that comfortable feeling about something that seems common but is, in fact, something that is outstanding. Outstanding is also a good way to describe this beautifully written poem by Khola.

“It was written on homecoming. Here ‘homecoming’ means: returning back to your own conscience. Accept your sins, leave your turbulent chaos and try to find peace within yourself.”

Coming home

I have left shores of turbulent sea
and have walked home
back to my soul,
I no longer seek challenges
riding the rattling waves,
I have learned to seek
happiness in the shadows
of your exploding memories
embracing you have given
my parched lips
a taste of divine nectar,
A single gaze from your eyes
froze time whiffing back life
to my lifeless cadaver.
