Who Lives Here?

Who Lives Here?

Sure, if you have a door, it has a lock,
but you shouldn’t answer holding a glock,
hating on every stranger that cares to knock.

I know it’s hard to trust in this world of fear,
but fear is not who really lives here. You do, dear.

Welcome those who find your doorway.
You just might find a new friend today.

Hospitality will always trump “Go away!”
Fear is shouting, “Close your doors!”
It’s so certain that there’s a coming war.

Open your heart. You know what that’s for.
