A Place Called Home

Home is a place that is safe,
Surrounded by friends and family.
A place called home.

Not everyone has a place to call home
Like most of us do.

I remember in the summer
Outside playing on the trampoline
With my brothers laughing all day long.

I also remember my backyard in the spring
Having barbeques with my family,
After, my grandparents let me and my brothers watch a movie.

Home is a place that you and your family feel safe
That’s not all home is.
Home is where you should feel happy.

Home is a place you feel good about who you are
And not being judged for who you are.
That is what home means to me.
