Home is a place I can go
A place I can call my own
Home is a place I feel safe
A place where there is shelter and family
It is sad that some people do not have a home
Which is why I am writing this poem
So if I win, someone will have a home
I want them to have a home
Because I know how much a home means to me
Why do we live on a planet where some people don’t have homes?
Maybe because it gives us a chance to care for others
Will we take that chance?
Or ignore it?
That is a question we will have to ask ourselves if we want to make the world a better place.
