What is home?

What is home? Home is the place where I eat, it doesn’t matter if its fruit, veggies or meat.
No one deserves not to have a home, just imagine that? No roof, no floor,not one bit of love, probably just an old mat.

Home is where I find love and support from my family. Even in the darkest of hours, we come together, no matter the tragedy.

When I go home, I see my dog wagging his tail with joy. When I am home, I have entertainment like tv, movies or even a toy.

Often, it’s easy to forget that some people don’t have a home. There’s people on the streets with alley’s to roam.

I can play video games and watch tv in my room. But the people on the streets always are at risk of doom.

My home is like a shield, it protects us from the darkness of the night. it protects us from the bitter cold until mornings bright.

I am so happy I have a good home, because everyone deserves it.
