What home means to me.

Home is a place where you’re surrounded by love
A place where you feel safe
A place where you feel nice and warm
A place where you have your own space
A place where you have funny conversations
A place where you have lots of chores
Home is a place where you belong no matter what race

At my home we have a garden every summer
At my home we share memories as a family
At my home we have so many loving neighbors
At my home we have a place to celebrate
At my home we have lots of arguments, but we always forgive
At my home we have photo albums to cherish the memories we have made

Not everybody has a weatherproof home, I wrote this poem to raise money for habitat for humanity so that they can help those who don’t have a safe home can have a safe home.
