Home is a feeling

I’m always complaining
On how my room is so
Small.

I cry and cry and yell
On how all my friends
Have bigger rooms then
Me.

Then I stop and think….
Then I say I’m being
Really selfish, I also
Say there are so many
People who don’t have
Homes.

I ask my aunty what’s
For supper she tells me.

I get so mad and say
I’m not having that,
I’ll start a fight.

I think about it, then
I realize that there
Are so many people
who don’t have
The 3 meals that
They should have a day.
Some don’t even have
Food on the table most
of the time.

When I was 4 I moved
To live with my Aunty and Uncle.

My mom was not able
To take care of me.

When I lived with
My mom I knew it
Was not the right home
For me.

When I came home from a visit
With some one I would be scared
To go home.

But of course there were
Some times that I had fun
With my mom, me and my
Mom did lots of things together.

A home is not a physical
Place it’s not just a house or
A building it’s a feeling.

You can have as
Many home as you
Want.

My sisters don’t
Live with me, they
Live in a different home.

But I see them all
The time, and that feels
Like home.

I may not live in
The same home as them,
But to
me it feels like a
Home.

I Guess WHAT IM TRYING TO SAY…
Is no matter where you are if you live
There or not it is ok to feel like that’s your home!
