The Meaning of Home

So many people have to go through this every day.
Coming home to see a house built with wood and sticks.
An ours are made with solid bricks.
Struggling to find a safe location to get some education.
While we beg every day like a fool to not go to school.
It makes me mad and sad thinking about them.
They’re grateful for everything they have.
And we always want more and more.
Going to sleep and knowing that someone is on the street.
No bed and not being properly fed.
Some of us are selfish and don’t want to share.
But when you do it shows that you care.
I think that people should be grateful for everything they have.
And always think how lucky they are to actually have a home.
