The meaning of home

Home is safe and a place of my own, as I snuggle in bed and talk on the phone.

It is the scent of meals prepared, it shows me how much my mom loves and cares.

Home is the place of music and dance, it makes me feel free to twirl and prance.

It will always be the place with candles and lights, laughing with pillow and water fights.

Home is the place for my Christmas tree, opening presents with my family.

My room is the place where I love to read, in books with hero’s taking the lead.

Home is where I help with chores, cleaning my room and mopping the floors.

I like to laugh and play games, Monopoly and Scrabble are the best when it rains.

Home is where I sleep and dream, thinking about cookies and cream.

It is the place where I keep all my pets, as they lay on my bed to sleep and rest.

Home is so cozy watching Tv, I can be so happy my favorite place to be.

But what about people who don’t have a home, they don’t have a place to call their own.

They can’t go to a fridge knowing there’s food, they may feel hungry, lonely, depressed and confused.

Lets change the world and make it a better place, not just for you not just for me, but the entire human race.
