Willow Grove, PA, 19090
Feels like my home away from home.
New Jersey's cool but when ever I got back to Pennsylvania, it felt like returning home.
Having said that, when in New Jersey, Seaside Heights in Ocean County... It was my New Jersey home, was 5/10 minute walk from that place to the board walk, New Jersey is fucking cool... I love Seaside Heights, like, weekends there and stuff, but... Pennsylvania always felt like home to me... Out there I mean, was good.
was the one
who was lost
and found in
my own thoughts
I've laid bare
and laid there
is it me or is it you
give me reason to...
I don't get why someone would be enthusiastic about their country just because they were born there and happened to grow up there.
I do understand enthusiasm for what the country has to offer- things to see, agreement with cultural and political values, things like that.
I think growing up somewhere is what causes you to identify with things like cultural and political values. I mean this isn't scientific but I've heard people talk about the difference in attitude of people from various countries. I'm hardly a jingoism and I definitely don't believe that the United states is infallible or necessarily better than all other countries. However there are certain things that I think are characteristic of Americans that I do like about our country. I don't know how to describe it but.....the American spirit.
