    before a home is
    made
    first,
    we have to build a brick house

    And then you make it strong
    inside
    But, it's only as strong as what
    YOU
    invite in

    and yes,
    some
    drop in, unannounced
    and I think
    man, I gotta change my residence

    then,
    on a ONE day,
    I think
    instead of changing my residence
    I just decided
    to STOP opening up the
    door

    It was
    GREAT
    cause I didn't get
    UNWANTED
    burdens in my heart
    and
    that gave me the ability
    to

    up

    up

    up

    and

    claim my spot.

    cause now,

    a STRONG FOUNDATION

    is

    what I got.

    Yes, it's important to look at what it is we are allowing to happen that puts a strain on our foundation. Good point to ponder poetess.
