The Best Home

Mom's delicious chocolate cake in the oven My extended family arguing on Friday mornings We join at the Mosque for prayer We're connected Home is watching shows and talking when aunts and uncles come Home is the dust when we play soccer with our friends The wind moving the trees Home is like shelter from bad emotions The smell of dinner during Ramadan My grandmother watering the flowers in the morning On the first day of Eid, the chocolate candies smell so good Playing soccer all morning with friends during Ramadan I love when I sit down with my extended family to eat dinner When a new baby joins our family our house begins to shine bright like a star
