It’s only a four letter word, yet it has a great meaning
So much can be held within a home
There’s the boards, the skeleton of the structure
The floor, on which you firmly plant your feet
The ceiling, to shield you from the oncoming storm
The walls, to lean on when you need some help standing
All of these make up a home
And it’s crazy
People and homes have a lot in common

The author's comments:

I am always struggling to find a place where I belong. I am constantly at war with who I am. My own house does not always feel like a home, but I have learned that people can be homes, too.
