Home

Home is where u laugh with joy,
When little siblings play with toys
Home gives you the feeling of safety
So when you come home you have it easy,
But some people cry at night
Because the worry of money gives a fright.
The worry of losing this home causes struggles
While other people aren’t very humble,
When holidays roll around most laugh together and celebrate downtown
While others work late at night to provide for their family,
Home for me is what you make it,
It can be your best friend or your worst enemy.
Home can be a bright happy place for you and your family,
Or a dark upsetting place that reminds you of your struggles,
Home is different for every boy and girl.
Just remember home is never perfect,
People may drown in struggles or feel as light as bubbles,
home.
