The Warmth and Love of Home

There is enough warmth and love in a home…enough to write a poem.

Where families live and die,

Where their shadows say goodbye.

And others say hello, it doesn’t matter; red, blue, or yellow, a home is a home.

Poor people are living on the streets with nowhere to go,

While we’re inside, watching a show.

They are there, out in the rain,

Most people are inside eating at a table,

but instead, I’m trying to help them find somewhere stable.

There is enough warmth and love in a home…enough to write a poem.
