no place like home

A house and a home

They don’t stand-alone

They are of the same definition

Hand in hand with equal recognition

The difference lies in the structure and in physique

Solved by an intricate sketch, carefully critiqued

A house built by each individual board and nail

But a home is built from a tale

Memories line each of the bricks and trimming

Meant to last to the end from the beginning

Some have the urge to let go because of past pain

But no matter what the presence it will always remain

Even if the building is ruins, and residence have retired

The thought will always be remembered and admired

We hold cause through our true identity inside

Through the rooms light will always shine and provide

We will always desire to be together, always longing

For the sense it gives us, the sense of belonging

We leave a mark on it; it leaves an imprint on our heart

The two will never in the end be apart

But a house is residential

And a home is sentimental.
