You are your Home - Erin Henson
If there's one thing that I may tell you
It is this : You Are Your Home
Your body is the only house
that you will ever truly own.
Maybe it's got some broken windows,
And, there are tear-stains on the floors
Maybe you lock the things you wish you weren't
behind its many doors.
But there's wisdom on its book shelves
and a laugh to light the rooms
There's a vase upon 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
that they have no time to collect dust.
So, please don't look at mansions
with envy in your eyes,
There's more that makes a home
than its appearance or its size.
Your body is your shelter
You deserve to love it all.
Don't let the world stand around outside
and tell you how to paint its walls?
How lucky that you have somewhere
to protect you from the night?
And, if there are cracks left from the past?
well then, they just let in more light.
