What a Home Is

What a home is
Home means something you feel safe in…
Where sadness could become laughter and amusement in seconds…
It’s when you feel cozy and modest when you’re by yourself…
When most of your memories began or started…
Or it was the first place you and a person started your new chapter with…
Home means a place you can refuge to when hard times are happening…
Maybe it is a place where a new person was born…
When a special event you cherish could have been around the home or in it…
A home is where it could be a wonderful neighborhood where wonders and mysteries were in…
When every day has something special in it that made it a good day…
You might even made or have a favorite sanctuary you love to be in…
When you can be as goofy as you want and still be safe!
Where it is your habitat and you love it, no matter what happens…
You wouldn’t sell it, even if they would say they will play 10X more than what the house is worth, or if it could be a life changer…
Where you could walk in and hear laughter and see smiles on faces…
A residence when you could have had the worst situation ever but be happy right when it’s almost time to go home or when you are home…
It would feel like, you have no doubts on god, that’s the feeling on of a home…
When you could have spent most of your youth in or lose a loved one in that home…
Or you could remember a friend or family member’s spot to be in, but they died or passed away in…
