My Meaning of Home

My home is a where I am cared for,
A place where love is always shared.
Sometimes, as I lay in bed,
I think of the people that cannot be fed.

This thought makes me very upset.
And this why I am writing this poem,
To help a family have a home!

My mom and dad make me so glad,
Because they will always make me happy when I am sad.
I am not doing this poem for a competition,
I am in it to complete a mission.

A mission to give a family a home,
A place to live, so they don’t have to roam.
So, thank you Habitat for Humanity,
For helping this world have a little more sanity.
