My Meaning of Home

I rush from the carpool drive into my home
My home is my comfort zone
It is where my things belong,
It is where I express my thoughts,
Feelings and feel strong.

Sometimes traumatic life experiences happen,
Like the fire, flood or death
It may be the last place where you take a stress-free breath.

Some people don’t have a place
But manage to roam somewhere
Where they can call home.

At the end of the day,
Be thankful and pray
Where the smell is familiar
The noises are loud,
And being yourself is allowed.
