A Place To Call Home

Home is not just a place.
It is a place where you learn, and make big mistakes.
It is a place where you feel safe, and are able to play.

Everyone deserves a place to call home.
Whether in your past, you have done some wrong.
It doesn’t matter where you are from, or your race,
Everyone deserves to have a smile on their face.

Whether your home is small, or big as can be,
or maybe your home is somewhere in between.
We should all be grateful for our homes no matter the size,
because some people have no home in the morning to rise.

This is why I’m writing this poem,
to help those in need.
Hopefully this piece will help spread awareness, even overseas,
from me, and to you.
Just remember what I’m about to say, will you?
It doesn’t matter who you are, or where you are from,
everyone deserves a place to call home.
