Home Sweet Home

Home can mean many different things to many different people…

It can mean a roof over your head,

or a place where you keep your bed.

It can be where you go after a long tough day,

or where you and your family stay.

Every home is different. No two are alike.

Some people live in shacks, garages, cars, or places they dislike.

But you are incredibly lucky to have a roof over your head.

Because some people don’t have one and that, I dread.

So, I say please be happy and thankful for your house;

Even if you share it with a rat or mouse.

I think of home as a place where I’ll be in future years ahead,

But really, what’s the meaning to you, to have a home or a bed?
