A Safe Place

I have a house
Some people don’t
I have somewhere safe to go
Some people don’t

Some people have a home, not a house
Someone’s home might be on a street
Their bed might be a bench
Someone might have a house, but with no heat
I have a house where my family cares for me
Some people freeze outside where nobody cares for them

Just by writing a poem you can give somebody a warm safe place to live That is why I am writing this
Over one million people in Canada don’t have a safe place to live

Everybody deserves A Safe Place
