DO NOT COME HOME by Micheal Ace

Son
Do not come home
Until the moon sees your shadows
When the sun brings them in the day
Do not come home
Until the sun sees your tears
When they bathe your face at night
.
Son
Do not come home
Until you find meaning to the poetry
Written on your palm
Until you read from the waves
Spelt on the sweats of the street
Where your feet duly course
.
Son
Do not come home
From your island of trials
Do not rest when the sun is still up
Do not sleep in realm of no dreams
Do not run on the same tracks
Of those fed from the silver breasts
.
Son
Do not come home
Until you understand these words
Everything is fair in love and war
Do not come home
Until you realise that a failure
Is he who couldn’t try one more time
.
Son
Do not come home
Until you are greater than nobody
But better than who you were
Do not come home
Because home is never a home
If no one loves you yet
.

    So, if you’re a failure, you are no “son” and have no “home”!
