The Meaning of Home by Sunny R

The Meaning of Home

Welcome.
this is my home, my space, my treasure chest
of all the things I love
Where I can trash reality
And fall into
A reverie
And If you look around
My precious, cherished
Treasure chest
Swivel your head
side to side, round and round and up, up to the sky
Skim your shining eyes across
But please, do not pry
Run your fingers along the walls
I know every dent and dimple
Every one of the knots and gnarls
All the imperfections, to me, hold a story

This is my home, my space, my treasure chest, my very own
dragon’s lair
Jealously guarded by a smooth white door
Where only family, love and friendship will get you through
If you do not possess these virtues,
I beg you, visitor,
Go out, live a life, taste freedom, and I will guarantee
That you will find the meaning of what home
Means to me

This is my home, my space, my treasure chest, my very own
dragon’s lair, the place where my soul lies
Where all my sweet childhood memories
Peek out
From every nook and cranny
Where I got to be
An eight year old veteran,
A veteran of hide and seek
The only one to know where to hide so that nobody could find
me

Here in my home, my space, my treasure chest, my very own dragon’s
lair, the
place where my soul lies, where I can dream
I used to think
That if pirates ever came barging
into the place I cherish most
in my heart,
I would hide
Safe
Like the sun behind silver clouds
Until…
Until I would fly up, up, upper,
Until I would get a taste of cloud candy floss
Like Popeye gulping spinach
Then go swooping down to that
Ugly, crude, spooky pirate ship, and defeat all of those meanie pirates
Pink sparkles
Trailing in my wake
I would dream up a concoction of flowery sweetness
To magic the ship into a neon pink one
A ship so magnificent
That
The waves bowed and bended
That
The clouds shone with gold
That
The heavens sent down a
cascade of rainbows
to the way my ship was heading
 
This is my home, my space, my treasure chest, my very own dragon’s
lair, the place where my soul lies, where I can dream, but where reality \
now sets in
This is my home, my space, my treasure chest, my very own dragon’s
lair, the place where my soul lies, where I can dream
This is my home, my space, my treasure chest, my very own dragon’s
lair, the place where my soul lies
This is my home, my space, my treasure chest, my very own dragon’s
lair
This is my home, my space, my treasure chest
This is my home, my space
This
Is
My
Home
 
Mine.
