The Meaning of Home

The meaning of home can be and is what you think of your home. What I think of mine is a place you can stay, a family there to protect you, and a pet there to love you. It is a place like a shed and kind of like a train station, a place where all your stuff is and where you move that stuff from place to place, a place to stay but also a place to return to when you spend your time away. It is like a central hub with a center that connects to all, a central hub that was specifically made for you, but can also house others. It is a place that has a place to sleep, a place to eat and a place to chill.

As I said, home can be anything depending on how you make it. Home is like a drawing with a pencil. You can always erase the mistakes. Home isn’t just a place– it’s your place. It was made for you! It’s a place that supplies you with what you need and what you want. Home is like the heart of a body, a body with other organs. People can not survive without a heart. That is why the people on the streets need a heart and need a home. It seems in every country there is a problem with homelessness and I don’t what these people to suffer any longer. I hope one day I can be able to give these people a heart, a home, a hub, a shed, a train station, a sense of home.
