Meaning of home

THE MEANING OF HOME
Home is a place where everybody is together
a place I love and cherish forever
It is where I play
It’s where I have fun all day
But…. There is something i hate to say
It’s that some people don’t have a place to stay
No roof to live under
No place to wander
Many of us don’t see what people experiencing homelessness see
They don’t have a safe place to be
They live on the street
With nothing warm to eat
And separated from the pack…..
Let’s not ignore homeless,let’s face it
Let’s make it a goal that by 2018 none of Calgary’s 3500 people experiencing homelessness should sleep outside or in an emergency shelter more than a week before moving in a safe affordable home.
