What Home Means To Me

Home is a place were family and friends gather.
A place where I will always have somewhere to sleep.
It’s a place were I feel safe,
A place were I will always have faith.

I don’t feel fear,
When my dog is near.
We plant plenty of seeds,
To help grow our basic needs.

My mom and I dig in the garden,
We add water so the dirt doesn’t harden.
We plant in the spring to eat in the fall,
That way we don’t have to buy food at the mall.

Sometimes I make a mistake,
My dad still makes me a birthday cake.
I feel more fortunate than others,
Because they may not have mothers.
