What home is to me

What home is to me

Home is a place where I belong.
Home is a place where a family should be.
Home is a place where I can get strong.
Home is a place where I can laugh.
Home to me is where I can be happy.
It’s a place where I can be myself.
It’s what everyone should have.
To me, home keeps me safe.
My home is just a part of my family.
It’s been passed from generations.
Home needs people too.

When I go to my bed and lie down,
I can hear the furnace rustling
It’s like the home is alive.
We need homes just as much as they need us.

There are people that need homes,
I hope someday everyone can have a home like mine.
I’m not doing this for me,
I’m doing it for the people who need homes.
