We All Deserve a Home

We All Deserve a Home

Everyone deserves a home,
No matter who they are.
No matter if they’re poor or rich,
Or if they’ve come from near or far.

We all should have a place to stay,
to feel all cozy warm.
A place to rest, sturdy and strong,
Through hail, wind, and storm.

We all deserve a place where we know,
We’ll have enough to eat.
A place to go when we’re feeling sad,
Or we’re left out in the street.

A place to be protected,
From peoples’ critical stares.
A place we know we won’t be caught,
By bullies’ nasty snares.

Now you know the reason why,
I’ve written you this poem,
To get the important point across –
We ALL deserve a home!
