The Place I Call Home

The Place I Call Home

The place I call home is not on the street,

The place I call home is a place that warms my feet,

The place I call home is a place where I have food to eat,

You see friendly faces all around your street,

My home is not a house,

My home is a place fit for me, not a mouse,

It is only a house, if you don’t feel connected to the place where you stay,

My home is a place to be free and play,

I have a place to stay,

I have a place to safe for me every day,

A home is a place that you can call your own,

It is a place where you can freely roam,

Now, as I write this poem,

I can feel my warm home,

My home is more than four walls and a roof,

A home is a place where all is safe,

Oh, I wish everyone had a home,

A place where they can roam,

A place where they too can write a poem,

A place they can call home.
