Katherine, Age 12, Reston, VA

Where is home?
Is it in your house?
A place to come after school,
After work?

Is it a special place?
Like a cool green hill?
With flowers
And grass?

Is it a person?
Who helps you belong?
Loves you for yourself
And understands?

Is it a book?
When opening it
It sucks you in
Making you forget everything?

Is it a pet?
Who greets you
Eagerly when you arrive,
And loves you?

I don't know where your home is,
Or why you call it home.
All I know
Is my home, and why.

My home is my heart.
I come to it every now and then,
Especially when I see you.
Welcome home.
