As time went by

It wasnít so long ago.
I mustíve been, just about five.
Parents abode, was but a house. †
I recall glimpses of that time, †
Standing out back, trying to survive. †
As time went by. †
Along ones path, from junior to high school, †
Stood tall lavish mansions. †
Standing, †
Between my abode and the emergency slip road    
Paving their way, along the road to the next zip code †  
The path. †
My journey. †
Iím aiming for that. †
I know it will happen. †
How I long for a place to call home. †
Honestly, †
Only one problem, Iím still just a child. †
For one so young, my trip could take a while. †
My path. †
Iím paving my way. †
Taking day by day. †
Now Iíve come to the end. †
My path had just vanished away. †
For even my new house is just an abode. †
Waiting for companionship. †
Maybe then, I can call it a home †
But wait. †
My parents abode, really felt like home. †
So, I was always on the right path. †
Just had to navigate my way back. †
To realise, I was always on track.
