What Home Means To Me

WHAT DOES HOME MEAN TO ME?

I hope to fulfill the wish of the homeless bit by bit, by writing what home means to me.

Home is a place some people may not own, they suffer from their poor quality of life.

Tears drain down from the homeless, their hope disappearing from the light bit, by bit.

Home is a place where I feel warm delightful comfort, that greets me every day.

But the homeless feel the opposite, coldness and the harshness of an unstructured cardboard home.

A home is a place I know I feel safe and protected, the home is a shield from roaring wind and hail.

But the homeless feel pain, as the hail strikes their back and the wind, glides and blows them away.

The HOMELESS don’t have a HOME, but don’t worry. I will grow their hope bit, by bit, with this writing about what a HOME means to ME.
