Somewhere Else

Personal (Hope)

I wasn’t created for this place.
I was meant for somewhere else
that will be my final destination
when I leave here.

This skin is not mine;
it’s borrowed for the time being;
soon I will have a body
that will not die.

This world is only temporary;
the earth will pass away
to be replaced by
a permanent paradise.
