The Meaning of Home

The Meaning of Home

To be home means family.
When I’m at home I like to be with my family.
I have always had one home.
The first time I ever had a second home was around two years ago.
That was when my parents split up.
I had to say goodbye to the only home I’ve ever known.
But I now love and cherish both of my homes.
They are definitely not three story mansions.
They are just right for me.
On my dad’s side I now have two brothers.
T have always been an only child.
It’s a bit different now but it’s still my home.
I also now have another mother role model.
On my mom’s side It’s just me and her.
A lot of the time I just want to go home.
She loves to drive so she always wants to drive around.
But me, I just want to sit at home.
