Home

A home isn’t just four walls and a roof,
It’s the love and the memories you put into them.

Home is my special place where I feel loved the most,
Where I am always encouraged to be the best that I can be.

Home is where I feel protected and safe,
from the frigid outdoors to the rain and the snow.
Home is where I am comforted.

Where I feel loved no matter what mistakes I make.
At home I feel free to be me,
I don’t have to hold anything in I can let it all out.

I hope this poem gives families a home,
because it’s something every child deserves.
