One House to Understand It All


One House to Understand It All by Margarita Cavazos

 

This house is full of emotion.

Remnants of lost time.

Words whispered and mistakened words said.

Least a place to lay my head.

 

To lose spirit; every dime given.

To lose a sense of state to live in.

To find the strength to keep good structure.

To better the world with bits of laughter.

 

This house is a house that all should live.

To learn of hard times and learn still to give.

To learn what it is to be thankful.

In a world that has learned to be wasteful.

Built by the hands of an understanding man,

With will to create through underlying plans.

 

For him this poem I so dearly write.

For him and others I carry on my fight.

For those who are born.

For those who are not.

For those yet to understand.
