What Home Means to Me

A home is not a house, a house is not a home.
They both are very different from what I know.

A home is where you feel safe,
happy, and loved. Where we face
anger, fear, and sadness.

A home gives you courage, to know
that you are with people who care for
you and will protect you forever!

A home is a place to make your
mind go blank, start a new beginning,
and let go of the past. You can make
new memories with new people and
journey to new places.

A home is not just a place to have
fun, there may be good, and bad times.
But leave those bad memories behind,
and be happy with the good ones you have.

A home is a place where you feel safe
and secure, like money in the bank.
No dangers will confront you and
fears to take hold of you.

A home is a place where you
Let all your sorrows out. You shed
Your tears and laugh out loud.

A home is a place where you
snuggle in close with your family.
You can feel their warmth all
around you. You let go of all
hardships and you fall gently to sleep.

A home is where you celebrate
birthdays. You open your gifts and
smile with joy! You hug your family tight,
your smile, shines very bright.

A home is where your heart fills
with love and pride, to know that you are
with people who love you
more than anything.

Everyone must have a home,
just like mine. For they too
deserve to feel safe and happy.
They too deserve to snuggle up close
with their family.

A home is not a house, a house is not a home.
