On knowing where home is

Home is more than where the heart is-
Its where your feet are planted,
Rooted
It is where you have chosen to belong
The people you refuse to let down
The tribe you prioritize.
Home is more than a sentiment
Or a place of fond memories
It is the context from which you flourish
A soil that is fertilized by your
Commitment to it.
To know where home is
Is to have non-negotiables
That can’t be compromised
And safe spaces
That house our secrets.
Home may not always be
Convenient or even pleasant
But it is ours.
Ours to build
Ours to cherish
Ours to always come back to.
