The Meaning of Home

A home is a safe place that we go to and for us not to be scared of anything. Home is a place where you can go to relax and to have fun. It’s somewhere where you are provided with food and blankets to keep warm at night. Home is also a place where we can leave our outside fears at rest and we can talk about them with our family and we can tell them how we are feeling. It’s someone that you feel safe with. We can have a place where we can cry if we need to and to not be afraid of people inside the house. It is full of happiness and joy and full of people who love you. It’s somewhere for us to go late at night. A home is where you can feel safe and overcome your greatest fears and not become them. A home where there is no negativity and there is always food on your plate and there is always someone for you to cry to or to hug if you need one. To me everyone should have a home to stay in on the darkest or even the brightest of days!
