You are your Home - Erin Hanson

If there's one thing I may tell you

Let it be this : You Are Your Home

Your body is the only house

that you will ever truly own.

Maybe it's got some broken windows

Maybe there are tear stains on the floors,

Maybe you lock up the things you wish you weren't behind its many doors..

But there is wisdom on its bookshelves

And, a laugh to light the rooms

There's vase on the table, where the love you've grown all blooms.

Dreams sit on the mantelpiece, next to kindness and your trust,

Where you use them all so often, they have no time to collect dust.

Your body is your shelter, so you deserve to love it all

Don't let the world stand around outside, and tell you how to paint it's walls.

How lucky that you have somewhere to protect you from the night

And, if there's cracks left from the past?

Well, then they just let in more light
