What Home Means To Me

Home is where I can sleep at night even during the darkest times.
A place where you can be yourself. A place to stay without a doubt.
A place where you will be fed well. A place where you can be loved and hugged. A place where family is close, someone I can always hold. I know they’d do the same for me, That’s the point of family. Home is where I can speak my truth, and I’m not afraid to show my roots. Home is where memories are made and i´ll never let them fade. Home is where i´m always warm even if it feels like the North. Home is where my fish can swim in his tank, and know that he is always safe. I hope this poem touched someone’s heart. I just want to do my part !
