Home is From the Heart

HOME IS FROM THE HEART
– by Ben McLean
– November 2016

A home is a place
Where one can feel cozy and comfortable when you’re feeling down
A home is a place
Where if you feel sad, home helps you get better
A home is a place,
Where you feel safe with your family surrounding you. It’s a place no one ever makes you feel bad
A home is a place
Where you can be you and no one cares what you look like or what you talk like,
It just doesn’t matter
A home is a place
Where you can feel like you have a purpose,
even if people outside don’t think you do
A home is a place
Where all the pictures of family are up on the walls
A home is a place
Where green grass grows outside
and the great smell of baking cookies is in the kitchen
A home is a place
Where everyone meets for holidays for great meals
A home is a place
Where we look after each other. Everything we do, we do it together
A home is a place
Where you feel free to do what you want to do
A home is a place
That holds my heart and soul.
