The Feeling of Home

The Feeling of Home

Home is where your feet can grow, your bodies can flow
Your family is safe with you, you have no fears of things
Have tones of friends, have a neighborhood with friends and family
Have safe dreams and have money for food and blankets for sleep
Have brothers and sisters to play with
Going for a bike ride with the feeling of “You are safe here” with friends along with you
Go to a park with sand and dirt and have hands for getting messy
Have 3 meals a day on the table and a TV to watch movies with your friends and get a little spoiled, like with a phone
Have friends over to play video games or tag or board games in your house
Nothing to be afraid of with family
Have a pet to keep you company while your parents are working
Home is where, in a storm, you know you’re in a safe haven where no rain will hit
With blankets over your head when you are scared
Playing with your pets under blankets or having them next to you while you are asleep
You’re safe and feel comfort of their love and affection to you
Their love grows.
Home is where your life begins… where you feel safe, not afraid to journey outside in the world.
Home doesn’t have to be your house…
It can be a grandparent’s house, or a classroom… anywhere can be a home as long as it’s home to you.
