What home means to me

What home means to me

A home is a place where I can be
Without danger coming at me.
The safest place where I can be
The memories I made.
The fun things I did
will always be at home.
Now I am older,
older than before.
The reality hits me.
Now I can see people without homes.
I realize I was selfish.
I see people suffering
while I’m here making a fit.
I see children,
the same age as me
without a home
and in need.
With their innocent eyes and smiling faces,
not realizing what stage they are in.
Without a home where would I be?
