Home

Home

A word
Four letters long
But means over 7 billion things
Because everyone has their own definition

For some people, it’s a house
For some people, it’s their school
Home can be anything you want it to be

Home is where you feel safe
Home is where you feel welcomed
Home is where you feel protected

If you don’t feel safe
Or welcomed
Or protected
Then it isn’t home

If you don’t feel safe, welcomed, or protected at your house
Then it isn’t home
If you don’t feel safe, welcomed, or protected at school
Then it isn’t home
So where is your home?

Home doesn’t have to be a place either
It can be a room or an area
Like your backyard
Or your own bedroom
Just somewhere where you feel like ‘home’

Don’t think of home as a house
Think of it as your safe place
A place where you can relax

Breath without struggle
Where you can walk without pain
Close your eyes without fear

No struggle
No pain
No fear
Just home.
