Home

Home

To me, home is where I feel acknowledged,

And love is certainly never demolished.

A place where I’m secure from my fears,

And where pessimistic feelings disappear.

Where I am encouraged,

As anyone who steps foot into my home is never discouraged.

A place where unforgettable memories are made.

A place where I am not at all afraid,

Knowing that my supportive family, and furry dog’s comforting ways will never fade.

Where I am fortunate to have food on the table,

And a warm, cozy bed available.

As you can see,

This is what home means to me,

And hopefully this poem,

Will let many others feel the joy of a home.
