Home is a Place

Home is a place to spit out your fears,
Home is a place to cry all your tears,

Home is not a place to be so mad
Home is not a place to be so sad,

Home is a place where I can be loved and cared,
To hide away from the storm when I’m scared,

Home is not a place to feel so trapped
Home is not a place to feel like getting whapped,

Home is a place that I can heal,
Where everyone knows how good or bad I feel,

Home is not a place to feel hated,
Home is not a place to feel so serrated,

Home is a place that I will have food,
And not where everyone is being so rude,

Home is not a place to feel invalidated,
Home is not a place to feel discriminated,

Home is beautiful and home is nice,
Home is a place where I won’t feel like mice,

But some people don’t have a home,
And they also will feel really alone,

We need to get those people a home,
And that is why am writing this poem,

They don’t feel what I feel at home,
All they feel is that dumb feeling – alone,

I want them to have a home and so should you
And stop them from feeling really, really blue,

If I didn’t have a home,
I would also probably feel really alone.
