We All Deserve a Home

Home is a place where you can stay,

a place where you can be yourself every day.

Home is a place where you and your family can reunite,

A place where love shines around the rooms and makes your soul feel bright.

Home is a place where you have a purpose,

A place where you don’t feel discouraged.

And when you are tired, you can lay down in bed to say goodbye to the day.

And when you awake you feel amazing knowing you have someone to talk to and to keep you company.

My one and only home is truly a gift.

We all should have a home and that’s why I am writing this poem.

We all should have family and not be alone.

A home is a special place because it’s where you have your own space.

And home is a place where you can sleep knowing that you’re safe.

But some people do not have homes and a lot of those people are alone,

So here I am writing this poem to help other people who deserve a home.
