No Place Like Home - Poem by Scarlet .....

There is no place like home
that's what people always say
well, what if you don't have a home?
only a house
and a house is not a home
a home is
a place of love and safety
a house is
a place full of pain but always empty
its always at war
For I live in a house, not a home
I run to the front door and try to open it
but its lock
I' m locked into this war
I sit in front of the only window
looking out
I see all these places at peace
in safety
while I sit here in the middle of a bloody war
I always wonder why can't I have a home
everyone around me has a home
but I’m locked into this house
my house
my bloody war
