House of My Dreams (Youth First Place)

February 18, 2014

Alaya Barnett is the first place winner in our youth category for the Home is Where the Heart is writing competition. Her poem captures the little things that make up:


The house of my dreams

Is not a Palace

It isn’t a Mansion

It isn’t a Castle

The house of my dreams is an affordable cozy little place

That my family can call home and be safe from harm

Housing For All Rally 2014 109

It can be a Cottage

It can be an apartment

It can be a Condo

As long as I can have a home I can afford

Weather my family grows from two to three or five

I want to have a home that’s mine

Backyard parties

Family picnics

Trimming the Christmas tree waiting for Old Saint Nick

All of these memories made

In the home that fit my needs

The House of my dreams
