Home not House

I am fortunate enough to have a good home.
Where I don’t have to worry
If there’s gonna be food on my plate by dinner.

A lot of people are not lucky enough to have a home.
Some people do have to worry
If there’s gonna be food on their plate by dinner.

Some people have a house but they don’t have a home.
But what does that mean?
You could buy a house but you can’t buy a home.

You could get anyone to build your house
But only you could build your home

Some people have a beautiful house
but because some family members have problems
they have to leave their home.

Some people don’t have a house
They’re forced out of their homes
Some people have a house but don’t have a home
They’re forced out of their homes
Luckily I am not those people
I have a beautiful home and a beautiful house

I wrote this poem to raise awareness
It was really easy to do
You could do it too
Just say what’s on your mind
