A Home

What does it feel like to have a home?
To me having a home is so lucky for me,
A home is a place where I feel I can be free,
Somewhere I can live throughout each week,

As I’m writing this poem I’m imagining all the happy faces,
that have lived through guilt and have been scary places.
I wouldn’t say I know how it feels, but I still want to give my praises
to each and every homeless person for they have been holding brave faces.

A home is the safest place to be to me
and I want the homeless to agree.
Forever I will be happy that I can see how lucky I am to
be free, with a safe and loving family in my
lovely home where I can sleep.
