Home

Home is where I can relax

Home is where I can turn up my music to max

Home is where I can be myself,

Home is where I can take my book from my shelf

Home is where, when I come in from the cold,

My hot chocolate can be the first thing I hold

Now all these things make me think,

What would it be like without a hot drink?

Or maybe without a clean drink at all!

I’m glad I have a house that won’t fall

Just saying that, again, makes me think

What if I did have a house that went “plink”

Then I think of the people

The tall and the small,

Who never even had a home at all!

Now I am grateful for what I do have,

Instead of being cranky and getting all mad.
