Here’s a “home”-themed piece from Everett, an 8th grader from Galva, IL:

About Home

Home- such a wonderful place; on the outside

Home- where love goes around; if you lucky

Home- where families are all fun and games; or they yell and scream

Home- there’s nothing like staying home; or wanting to leave

Home- there’s nothing like home; there’s no one to help

Home- “Home Sweet Home”; “Home Abusive Home

Home- where you can be yourself; where you can’t be yourself

Home- your safe place; you wish for a safe place

Home- the happy place; the scary place

Home- it’s hard to leave; you wish to leave

                                                          Home- home is a home; home isn’t home
