What A Home Is

Home is a place,
Where I can be safe
From the gashing hail outside,
Into my parents’ arms.

Home is a place where I can laugh,
Where I can play
Where I can express my emotions,
Without someone judging
A place where I can sing.

But some people don’t have a home
They just have to roam
All around trying to find one.
It makes me sad that people can’t afford one.
Who can’t have fun
With all of their family and friends.

So be grateful,
For what you get
You just need to have the right mindset.
Because some people don’t have a home
And have to stay alone.
