The Meaning of Home

Home is a place where you feel safe,
Like a turtle in its shell,
A place where you feel free to be yourself,
Somewhere to stay when you’re feeling unwell.

Home is not the box of bricks and cement,
The place where you reside
Home is the people who no matter what,
Will always be by your side.

Home is a place of comfort,
Where your heart is put at ease,
A place where you can speak your language,
Whether it is English, French, or Chinese.

Everyone that lives on this earth,
Both big and small,
Needs a home
Most importantly of all.
