My Home..

via Daily Prompt: Messy

IC : My Home 🙂

My house may be messy at times,

Cushions strewn over, newspapers scattered,

Books lying on the sofas, milk spattered,

Bread crumbs lying on the floor,

Pencils in the sofa gaps and more,

Shoes lying outside the shoe rack,

School bags never kept back.

Might sound like mom is a bit lax,

But believe me, I have learnt to let go and relax,

For the cleanliness freak that I was,

I am surprised at myself that I have let go of my flaws,

I feel ever grateful to have kids around,

Who leave a mess around and on the ground,

At least, I know, the house is a home,

And not a spick and span hotel room.
