What is a Home?

What do you call a home?
A place to rest after you roam.
A pad to share with those with a common genome.
Or is it firstly and fore-mostly - a feeling, a syndrome?

Rooms, furniture and furnishings make a dwelling,
What makes a home a deep, special feeling?
With what and how much effort and intent?
Are homes sustained despite consent and dissent.

While each unit runs on different principles and note,
Home is ideally where members care and camaraderie  devote-
On each other to feel unequivocally loved,
With space to exist as individuals-without being judged.

So many emotions are at play in each home,
Good, bad and ugly-to which we are all prone,
Sentiments are teased and tested at regular doses,
High and low feelings exist with and without proses.

Happy homes run on large heartedness,
Dollops of forgetfulness and forgiveness,
Not on dominance and oneupmanship,
But on positive vibes and lasting friendship.
