Searching for Home

After walking a long distance through the forest he still could not find home. His body was becoming weak as he had not eaten or had anything to drink in days. He was starting to loose hope and believing that his entire displacement came as a result of fate.

As thoughts ran through his mind, a voice said to him: ‘look behind you, you are so deep in thoughts that you even went past the very home you have been searching for’ then the voice vanished. Still amazed at what he just heard, he looked back and indeed saw a beautiful house with golden gates. His heart was filled with joy.

He went towards the gates, and as he got closer the gates opened. He walked towards the door but fell right outside as he was approaching. He then began to dream, in his dream he had entered the door.
