WHAT HOME MEANS TO ME:
HOME IS MAKING MEMORIES
THANKFUL EACH DAY
LAUGHTER ALL AROUND THE ROOM
MY LIFE IS FULL OF FRIENDSHIPS
I AM ALWAYS HAVING FUN
TOGETHER with my family
I always have food
I get welcomed by nice neighbours
Always warm and cozy
Freedom all my life

I am so happy that i can’t stop smiling
With a home i feel safe
I get hugs and kisses from my family
I feel proud of myself
With a home a feel kindness
I feel friendship in the community
With a home i feel welcomed
I feel helpless
I don’t have a job
I lost all my money
My family doesn’t want me anymore
I need to find a home
But i lost all my money

I don’t have a home anymore
With a home i am freezing outside
Without a home i have no fun like parks and games
With no home my life is in danger
Everyday my tummy rumbles
I get bullied by old friends

I feel frightened and alone with no home
i feel like no one cares about me
Sad and lonely in the streets, with no home i feel uncomfortable
I feel like i don’t matter anymore
I feel like the world has forgotten me
No one wants to be my friend i feel like learning is very hard
Home is not just a place it’s a feeling
