What is Home?

What does home mean to me?
It’s a place where I don’t feel amiss.
Home is where the heart is,
A place to find my bliss.

Home is where I can go when I’m feeling down,
To cheer me up and erase a frown,
Maybe with a few comforting words,
Or a funny face from a family clown.

I believe that everyone deserves a home,
No matter their wealth or power.
I believe that everyone deserves a home,
Where they can find peace, at any hour.

Home is my comfort zone,
Where I can laugh with my family,
Or just rest by myself, reading a good book.
Home is where I’m truly happy.

I fill my home with lots of love,
To share with family and friends.
In my home, I don’t have to worry,
Or try to keep up with trends.

What does home mean to me?
Home is a place where I can be me,
Never judged or criticized,
With all my quirks and oddities.

I believe that everyone deserves a home,
No matter their past or histories.
I believe that everyone deserves a home,
To fill with happy memories.

A house is different from a home,
But how can that be said?
A home is welcoming, safe and free,
A house is a roof over your head.

A house is a building,
Where some people live,
A home is a welcoming place,
Where people laugh and give.

I believe that everyone deserves a home,
No matter their religion or race.
I believe that everyone deserves a home,
As their fun and joyous place.

But not everyone has a safe or comfy home,
No matter how we wish it would be.
I believe everyone should have a home,
Because who doesn’t deserve to feel happy, safe and free?
