The host was talking about the latest hits and how the songs just seemed to hit home, after which she took a little pause before asking: “When was the last time you went home?”

Then there was silence, as if she had been asking someone, and was left unanswered. I looked at the radio, stared at it in confusion, wondering if it had lost reception. There were no static noises, no songs and the host was nowhere to be heard. The car fell to a deafening silence once more. I guess the radio show ended, I thought to myself.

“Well?” the radio host asked again. “It isn’t polite to ignore one’s question, you know?”

Honestly, I don’t know.

“You don’t know?” the radio host continued with her barraging questions as if she was reading my mind.

I don’t. Ever since I was a child, I have never found a place where I felt like I belonged. The constant screaming and arguing between my mom and dad rendered me to not having a place to yearn for as a child. I was eight when I ran away from home and wherever I went, it always seemed so strange and foreign. I’ve come so far, but I’ve got no strings to pull me back to an origin. I am lost.
