Meaning of Home

Home to me is a place to roam free.

Quality time with my family brings me glee,

Cooking at home comforts me,

Dinners around the table with family and me.

Playing games brings me closer to family and friends.

In my room my privacy is respected,

Meditating takes me to a peaceful spirit world.

Trying to sleep, Thinking of people who have to strive to eat.

I feel sad that I can’t give money to the homeless.

Looking at homeless roam, I feel grateful for a home.

Fundraiser and charities are there only shine,

Now it’s time to pay their financial needs to survive.

Poems can make an impact in the community, and so can you.
