Home

Home means to take baths every night
To bake bread every week
To have my Mami and Daddy love me.

Home means to have all the comforts
That are in the home, good food,
Accessible clean water, entertainment.

Home means having lively discussions
About science and games, philosophy,
About books and how things were long ago.

Home means to feel safe and not be judged
About being different and be accepted and
Acknowledged.

All people need to have houses and homes alike
And both need to be sturdy and safe.
