Meaning of Home

When I think of home
I think of all the memories I’ve had there
I think of my family
my dog,
my toys
my food,
my bed,
all of it.

When I am at home,
I feel happy,
I am free to do whatever I want.

To me home is not just a house with people.
Home is memories
Good ones,
Bad ones,
To me that is what makes a home

A true home is a place where you can go,
No matter how your feeling.
Whether you are happy or your sad,
It’s a place you can go and feel safe.

That is why I think everyone should have a place to call home.
A place that they can feel safe and welcome.

That is what home means to me.
