*HOME IS NOT.......... BUT!

Home is not a bulding made of
Cement and mortar
Wood and steel
Bricks and stones
Marble and granites
Tubes and chandeliers!
Though of course essential!
Roses and jasmines
Plants and trees
Do add beauty but makes not
An ideal home!
Essential of course but
Not sufficient to make
An ideal home!

Human body is not something made of
Bones and joints
Blood and flesh
Eyes and ears
Hair and teeth
Hands and legs
Nails and fingers!
Essential of course but
Not sufficient to make
An ideal human!

Home and humans
Sacred and holy!
Need to be kept
Neat and tidy
Cool and warm
Clear and clean
Strong and serene
With people
Young or old
Rich or poor
Sick or healthy
Men or women
Learned or otherwise!
All should have
Mind sans fear
Heart sans bias and hatred
Mind sans malaise and prejudice!

Every one should be
With love and affection
Respect and regards
Towards all
Known and unknown
Good and bad
Strong and week
Timid and meek!

Every one should be
Blessed with
Heart with compassion
Mind with nobility
Face with smiles
Ears to hear all good words
Tongue to speak the truth and sweet
Eyes to see all the good on earth
Hands to help and legs to lead!

Home becomes a heaven
Elders not put in old age home!
My beloved God
May all the homes on earth
Be the homes I wish!
