The surrounding silence drowns her eardrums.
The surrounding darkness lightens her sight.
What seems like loneliness is barely a manifesto,
of peace and tranquility on site.
That is the power of the home:
a foundation stronger than titanium;
unyielding yet more pliable than gold,
peaceful yet more explosive than plutonium.
Ohana, ohana, ohana.
Where dreams and futures begin.
Ohana, ohana, ohana,
with love, 'twas born within.
