For today's word, I don't need to go look at the dictionary.
I feel its meaning deep in my bones, in my heart, through my veins:
H O M E
My home doesn't need a white fence or a flag.
My home doesn't need walls, or borders.
My home doesn't need a key or even a door.
My home is always open, always warm, always beating.
My home doesn't need wars and disputes, it doesn't need politicians and citizens, it doesn't need rules that don't work, and it doesn't need rules that do.
My home is my heart -- It only needs me, and it only needs you.
