The Meaning of Home

A home is like the deep blue sea
It’s where you and your siblings grow to be
A home is where you’re safe and sound
A place where you can giggle and laugh all day long
A home is fabulously fun to be
And also where you’re friends can be
A home is like a mom
It takes care of you all day long
You can smell the smell of food in the kitchen.

A place where you can do anything
Without being judged or embarrassed
A place where you can bring your needs
A place where you grow memories
A place where you can be happy
A place where you can learn to be a respectful person
A place that provides drinks and food
A place where you can be free
And do whatever you need
A place where you can be yourself
A place where all the lights come on
A place I can always stay
A place where I can run all day
And play until the night light comes

A home is like a friend
It’s beautiful just how it is
It’s a place where I live my childhood
And it’s a place I will never forget.
