A House or a Home

By Kayla Greenlaw

Look at this house

We try to make it home

They say we will stay here

We know it’s a lie

I hang no posters

Leave a few boxes packed

Not much has changed from everything I knew

Yet in my heart I feel a sadness

It rises to the surface from deep down inside

It tears at my soul

I feel like I’ve left pieces of me behind

Not a single room was unemptied

But an entire life stays there

Etched into its walls

If only they could talk

I long for that home

Where there’s a dog relaxing on the porch

There is a difference between a house and a home

And if home is where the heart is

Where did mine go?

If you plan to vote Tuesday, will you only vote for candidates from one party or will you vote for candidates from more than one party (i.e., split your ticket)?
