This House Is Not My Home

My Home

I will fill it with life and joy and vibrancy
with muddy feet and wet dogs
walls that were made for fingerprints.
My house will be a home
Where there is proof of life – of people living within those four walls
and love coming back home.

My home will not be a house – it will be a home.
And a family bound in chords of love will call it home.


The House

I inherited a house which once was a home in spite of the war within.
I live in a house which is no longer a home – divided by a war within us.
One day I will have a Home no longer divided by strife.
