No House

No House
Once I had no home, no house
nothing
except I had my mom and my friends.

We stayed at other people’s homes.
We said thank you and
we were truly grateful.
But it felt more like a house.

There were so many good and bad memories
During those three months.
We started to look for a place.,
We saw basements and houses
but then we saw an apartment.
I can’t imagine what my mom was feeling during that time.
She was a single parent and had a six year old daughter
On her hands.

I could tell you all about it but I won’t
but maybe one day
I might.

We got the apartment.
We have lived here for three years now.

I lost my house.
But I never lost my home.
