Simple

Focus in,
Pare down,
Aspire
To this:

One place to call home.

One unifying
Idea
By which
To question,
live,
learn.

One place
To which
You can retreat
For comfort
Aid
Inspiration
Rest.

One person
for whom
You would
Do anything.

And one peak
On which
To set your sights,

And by which to gauge
Your direction.

--Mr. Gobley
