The Spirit of Home

A house
The smell of paint fills the place
The sound of silence echoes through the space
The walls are plain with no colour
The bedrooms are empty with nothing to discover
The atmosphere is lifeless

A home
The smell of fresh food cooking
The sound of children laughing
The walls covered with drawings
The bedrooms packed with toys and belongings
The atmosphere is full of life

For a house is just structure and beams, and a home is full of life and dreams
