What is Home?

Home is a place I’ve always known,
and especially a place where I’ve grown.
Home is where I sit by the fireplace
While I stare out into space.
While we all gather, all I hear is chatter.
I will never be alone while I’m home.

I look at all the people that live on the streets,
and I think of how they can’t eat.
Some even have to strike a deal for their meal.
We all live our comfortable lives
watching those who have no home forced
to aimlessly roam. This is what
happens everyday, In so many different ways.

I know now that we need to donate
to open a gate. Their passageway into
a new light now glows very bright. I now have
such clear sight that I know for them we
must fight.
