What Home Should Be

Home shouldn’t be sad and depressed,
It should be the place were you feel the best.
Home shouldn’t be all doom and gloom,
It should be the place where happiness blooms.
Home shouldn’t make you feel unfortunate or down on your luck
It should make you feel lucky, like you just won 1000 bucks
Home should be the place were you feel delighted
Rather than feeling uninvited
Home should give you a feeling of protection,
Instead of a feeling of rejection.
Home is a place in my heart
And no one can tear us apart
Home is what gets me though the day
and when I’m there, I never want to go away
Home is my fire and my indestructible shield,
Instead of a battlefield.
After a long day I know my shield and my fire will never go away
