Home Improvement

Your home is your castle,

Your body is your home,

And no, this is not a “make healthy choices,” lecture.

But an observation,

about the atmosphere of mine.

A quieter place

Now that some of the demons

Have grown and left.

Because their “parents”

Are toxic.


And fear of burdening,

Inherited from my neighborhood.

As old as they are,

They are twice as stout.

But I am still pulling up old wood,

To build a floor of confidence in my house.

I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
