It is never far away
the call of the distant way
to see if I will come
to their appealing cave
and stay with them
on the mountain
away from all of you.

I do not belong among
the normal people
without a label
because they do not
want me next to them
and I don’t want to be
anyplace I am not welcome.

If you come to the cave
you will find folks
from your family
and your neighbors
even people you
went to church with
and went on vacation with.

The cave is full
of just plain people.
