What is the Meaning of Home?

What is the meaning of home? Is it cozy beds? Toys? electronic devices, chairs and other things? For me it’s not, for me … it’s the street. Every day I’m by myself with no one, none of my family, no one. Just me and my cat Timmerman. We are not anywhere near wealthy, but every once in a while we will go to this place called Martha’s Table where they provide food for the homeless. Similar to that, every Christmas I get a fair amount of canned goods from the people that are willing to help the homeless.

Well, I hope you now know what the meaning of home for people like us means. We are homeless, people don’t realise our homes every time they pass by in their car, because people like me don’t have one.
