What is reality if not for dreams?
What are dreams if not for reality?
A house is an endeavour;
a dreamer’s joy if you will,
something that everyone does crave.
It’s an image of belonging,
the roots to a family’s existence,
without which, a family has no place.

A house is but brick and timber;
a home is what you make of it.
A home is an establishment
of everlasting hope and dreams.
She, not it, exists as a symbol
of a family’s undying pledge
to provide the spoils of wealth and riches
to the rightful kin and family’s heir.

One can move away from their first house,
across vast continents if you will,
but a home stays with you forever
and will exist in your memories
and dreams, until the bittersweet conclusion.
A home, like a lover, exists in your heart,
unlike a house that will exist only in your eyes
and the eyes of all who enter your humble abode.

What begins as a house can soon become a home.
By filling her with all your worldly possessions,
your memories, your thoughts and your love,
she soon grows up to become a place
of great warmth and significant happiness
and if you listen real closely to the walls,
the ceilings and the floors, sometimes a home’s secrets
permit their many great stories to be conveyed.

I am an online journalist, video game reviewer, mental health advocate and post graduate university student. I am a massive video gaming geek; a lover of intellectual conversations; an award winning procrastinator; a devilishly charming nuisance and the definition of 'fun' (sometimes). My blog is filled with many a soporific love poem, and is simply the beginning in my quest to become a published author. Please stop by and say 'Hi!' (that rhymes!) :D
