The Walls Around Me

On the cold, windy, and snowy days
I prefer to stay inside,
Warm and cozy in my home
With the strong, thick walls around me.

I am lucky, privileged
No worry about food or having a roof over my head.
I can be and become myself
With the safe and nourishing walls around me.

From my pillow I see
The sun climb up into the sky.
An awesome day ahead, playing.
Mothers Nature’s Trees stand around me.

When things go wrong
And I feel like crying
My family is there,
With their support and love around me

Everybody deserves a home.
Let’s bring the community together
To build the walls
To make it a home.
