No Place Like Home

Home was safe and sound where nothing bad happens.
My home protected me from danger, it was warm, cozy and relaxing.
I felt loved and cared for at my home.
My home had rooms, windows, furniture and my family.
But one day……. everything changed,
we lost our home.
Now I don’t feel warm or freedom at all.
I feel cold, hungry, tired and really scared.
We stay in a friends basement it is cold and hard.
We only an air mattress, tat doesn’t hold air.
We have thin blankets.
I don’t feel safe.
It is painful.
This is not the same as Home.
