The meaning of home

They don’t have, what you have
But they need, what you need
But they don’t always have what they need
Which is why people who do have more than they need.
They should give. Not take, from people in need
At home, you feel safe.
Warmth, comfort, belonging.
A place you don’t feel the temperature drop,
Or the heat rise.
You feel safe.
Some people don’t have safety.
They are not warm or cozy.
They are never ever safe.
They sleep in boxes instead of beds.
Which is why people who have what they need,
should give to people who need what they have.
