A place where I feel safe
A place where I feel loved
A place where I feel happy

A place where I am warm
A place where I am comforted
A place where I am privilege

A place where I can call my room mine
A place where I can have fun
A place where I can play with my animals
A place where I can eat
A place where I can stay healthy
A place where I can make memories
A place that is full of joy

But some people don’t get all that stuff
They don’t get to eat
They don’t get to be healthy
They don’t get to be warm
They don’t get to call something there’s
They don’t feel safe or privileged

They don’t get the stuff that I have
They don’t get to be happy
They don’t get to have fun
They don’t get to go to school

We are lucky to have a home
We are lucky to have a family
We are lucky to have food
We are lucky to be healthy
We are lucky to be warm
We are lucky to be comforted
We are lucky to be happy
We are lucky to be safe
We are lucky to be loved

I am thankful for the food that I get
I am thankful for the safety that I get in my home
I am thankful for my family
I am thankful that I am loved
I am thankful that my room is mine
I am thankful that I am healthy
I am thankful that I am comforted
I am thankful that I can be warm when I am home
I am thankful that I can have a nice home
I am thankful that I get proper medicine when I need it
