What Makes a Home

A home is a warm, safe place to be.
A home is a place filled with love,
happiness and kindness.
A home might sometimes have sadness or anger but,
that always goes away.
A home normally has a place to be calm and
a place to sit down and play.
In a home there’s making and the fresh smell of baking.
In my home there’s the bark of a dog.
In a home there’s movie nights and birthday parties,
colorful walls and chipping paint.
But not everyone has a warm and safe home.
That’s why I’m writing this piece,
to help someone get home.
Where they can be warm and cozy,
make memories and have fun.
A house is a building, a home is your own,
and there’s no place like home.
