Growing a home

Home is a place where you reside. It is a growing garden, which you water by dwelling in its chambers. It is your own world where you can tuck yourself away and contemplate life’s decisions, sleep, and dream unimaginable things that are fabricated like a quilt with many pieces from events you have lived through. Even if its aesthetics are not appealing it is still a place of comfort, a place that you rest your soul and heart at the end of the day. Let it grow, slowly, or rapidly, at its own pace. Before you know it you will have grown you own kingdom. Sometimes the world sprints around you and you get dizzy, you forget about who you really are–so return to the garden, lie down on the flower beds, and look up at the bright starlit sky. Water it and let your light shine down on your garden.
