Poem: He Wants To Go Home

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"He Wants to Go Home" is a poem about a man who thinks the grass is greener on the other side.

He takes the long winding road only to be disappointed.

He longs to find shelter in her loving embrace once more.

He wants to go home.

"Loving Arms" by Dixie Chicks


He Wants to Go Home

Believing the grass is greener
on the other side
he strolls down the long winding road,
only to discover shattered dreams.

A heartache like no other,
a lingering disappointment
ripping his essence into tiny fragments,
leaving him tired and alone.

He wants to find shelter
from the path of this wicked storm,
he wants to go home
to be safe in her loving embrace once more.


I am not the same, having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world.

— Mary Anne Radmacher
