What Is the TRUE Meaning of Home?

Home is a wonderful place to be,

But sometimes that’s all people really see.

Which isn’t always totally fair,

Given that that’s not all that’s there.

Home means simple things, like someone having a roof over their head,

A home doesn’t have to be big-hey, a home could even be a shed!

No home is too small; a lot of places are a house.

Maybe you even share your house with a mouse!

A house isn’t something to be ashamed over its looks or its size.

It’s an amazing place, so please don’t look and despise.

Sometimes we really want to get away,

So home is a lovely place to stay.

A home can give you a splendid number of things,

Let’s talk about what a home simply brings:

Shelter, food, love, and many joys.

Maybe even a bucket of toys!

Big, tall, large, small.

Some people live in Montreal!

Thousands of houses, but none are alike,

Like some houses even have a unique spike!

A house isn’t something to be ashamed over its looks or its size.

It’s an amazing place, so please don’t look and despise.

Play hide and seek with your siblings: “BOO!”

What is home’s true meaning to YOU?
