What Is Home

Home is where you should be happy,
After a day of hard work.
With friends who are mean,
With a boss that is snappy.

Home is where you can show your quirks.
Home is where you eat a meal.
Home is where you have fun.
Home is where you can make a deal.
Home is where you have finally won.

Home is a place filled with warmth.
I’m sad to see a world in the cold.
Up here in the north.
I’m happy to see people doing some thing so bold.

Home is where your heart lies.
Home is where your family lives.
Home is where you can be wise.
Home is where you can take and give.
While in a world where no mater where.
Some is going to stare.

Home is something that some live without.
Home is something you are proud of.
Home is something that fills some with doubt.
Home is something filled with love.

You should have the right to own a house.
You shouldn’t have to sleep with a mouse.
You shouldn’t have to hide in fear.
Of your neighbours growing too near.
You shouldn’t have to be alone.
Or sleep on top of a cold stone.
You should have the right to live
Where you are safe and free to give.
In a safe home anywhere at all.
Habitat For Humanity answers that call.
