Home

Home is a place,
No,
a feeling and a place,
a place where I feel safe,
not needing to worry about the tragedies people face today.
A home should be a peaceful feeling,
a feeling everyone should feel.
A home is built not by wood or steel but with the bond of a family’s love.
Home is happiness, sharing, grief,
Home can stay connected no matter what happens.
Home is a community, home can be in the desert, the Arctic Ocean or even under the sea,
as long as you have your family by your side
nothing can break your home,
not fire, not floods, or deaths.
Our family spirit that lives in our home keeps us alive,
not needing to worry about being forced out of our home,
no need to leave home behind.
Everyone should have a home.
