A Home

A home is a place where I can stay
A home is where I can say come over friends we can play
A home is a place where i feel special and comfortable
So I can come alive and recharge my battery by sleeping
And have a mom to tell me she loves me every time I go to school
A home is my castle and i am the princess
A home is where I feel tranquil.
A home is where I don’t feel imprisoned all day
A home is where I can sing songs all day
A home is a place where I can draw and not sob
A home is where I can laugh and not be sad
A home is a place where I can run in the sun and have fun
A home is where I can play with my dolls all day
A home is a place where I don’t feel ashamed that don’t have to say I don’t have a home
And don’t feel depressed or oppressed
Also a home is where i can feel like a kid again and don’t have to work at factories
This time a home is a place where i can go to school and not look like a fool and don’t have to lie that I can’t come to a school
And have a voice to say I have a home every day
A home is where a mom feels like she is providing for her family and proud
