Home is…

This poem was created by the women’s group at the Jinnah Centre in Bury, supported by Jen Harris and Ferne Collins. It is part of the Age Friendly Manchester Culture Champions Programme.

Home is…

Home is where I feel happy,

My safe haven.

Home is where I feel relaxed,

Where I can wear comfy clothes,

I can be myself.

Home is Family.

And you can do anything freely.

Home is my castle!

Lots of washing,

Full of washing,

There is never an empty basket.

Home is full of football boots!


Nice smells,

Home is….

Home is my crafting place

And my cats,

You feel comfortable.


Home is Peace,

Home is Family,

Home sweet home.
