A home is not a house, A house is not a home.

A house is a place where you eat, where you sleep. A house is a place where you stay to keep clean. A house is a building, a house is a dome. A house is a place, not a place you call home.
A home is a place full of laughter and joy. A home is a place filled with memories and toys. A home is a place where you feel loved and accepted. A home is a place where you feel safe and comforted. A home is a place where you don’t have to worry ‘bout other people’s thoughts, or actions, or words. You are loved by your family, you are loved by your friends. They will always be with you, from now till the end.
A home is deep inside you. A home is in your heart. You must guard it with your soul. You must love it with your heart. You may not think much of it now, but just wait. There are people out there with no place to stay. There are people out there with no house, no dome-no fridge, no food, and most of all, no home.
A home is not a house A house is not a home.
