What Home Means to Me

What is a place where I sleep or is it more? Home is about the memories we keep, the friendships we make. Home is about love and being there for each other. Homes can be tall or small, you can be king or queen or anything in between. Home is where I feel the most safe and build the most faith. Home is warm and I feel no harm.

Sometimes when I’m down I feel like I have nothing, but I always will have a home no matter what. Here and there somebody will have a bad day. A little love and happiness will cheer them up. Families are always there for each other through the rough and tough.

Homes are the best everybody deserves one, but not everybody has one. This is why I’m writing this poem to influence others and to donate money to make sure everybody has a home to call their own.
