I can’t tell, however
if it is.
Home should offer light and safety.
I don’t think it harbors those.
What would happen if every home
and remaining safe?
If all homes had these,
would we be the same?
Would there be conflict?
I don’t know.
I can’t tell.
I do feel, however,
there might arise,
Is the fear of monotony a reason,
be it good or be it bad,
a reason for conflict
Could it be a true and reluctant conclusion?
