The Meaning Of Home

Home is a place where I am free to be myself
Getting home and being greeted by the sweet scent of a warm dinner
Or my cats purring and meowing
This is my happy place

My favourite place in my home is my room
It is like a fox’s den, so cozy and warm
And keeps me safe from storms
It is where I can blast my music
Or paint big bold paintings that capture my dreams

I have been in this home since I was nine years old
If the walls could talk they would tell you all of the memories my family has made together
Like the hide and seek places we found or the wonderful dinners mom cooked
My home is where memories are made
My home is my happy place
