Where Is The Heart

But a Home

Where Is The Heart

A home

Is not always four walls, a ceiling, and the luxuries of a house.

A home

Is built on love.

Fosters understanding.

Breeds community,

and swiftly defuses a grudge.

A home

Is where a family may meet and greet;

Be they a family by blood

Or a family built on the strongest friendships.


May feel like a trap;

Where dreams go to die

And misunderstandings and misjudgments lurk

A home

Is your safe haven

To long

To love

To dream

To pursue.

To live...

A home

Is where you can be you;

And loved ones are free to be themselves.

Even a home

May foster





But a HOME is where it is safe to discuss and defuse these matters.

Your home can be your safe harbor


In any community;

but a HOME is what you make of it...
