The True Meaning of Home

Home is a place to be free,
Home is a place for my family and me.
Home is a place to be loved and respected,
And at home, hugs are never rejected.

Since many people don’t have a home,
The number of homeless have grown and grown.
It is very important to be grateful,
For all you have may once be gone.

Sometimes we take our homes for granted,
Yet, if we only knew where some families were planted.
Alone, without anyone to help,
For a home is all they ever wanted.

So whenever someone needs a hand,
Help them, because to them your help would be grand.
A home would mean so much to them,
Just like your home means a lot to you.
