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.
