Grade 4

British Columbia


My house
One roof
A couple doors
A dozen walls
More windows than I ever look out of
Clean water from a tap
These are the things that
Keep me warm
Keep me safe
Keep me dry

One brother
Two sisters
Parents who love me
Places to sleep
Places to play
Places to read
These are the things that
Keep me happy
Keep me smiling
Keep me myself
My home.

Tarp in the rain
Sleep on the ground
Searching for food
Walking for water
No house
No home
Not fair
Time for change
Time to give
Time to help.
