A Place To Call Home

What does home mean to you?

Maybe it’s the area

Your neighbours

Your family

Or

Your house that you’ve changed into a home

Perhaps it’s all those things

To me it means all of those things and freedom

Does freedom come at a price?

In the beginning it did

I hid who I really was

Was I afraid of what they would think?

In the beginning ‘they said’

Get a degree first then everything will follow

Now I know

‘They’ didn’t know the truth

follow your heart instead

In the beginning

I didn’t know my building or the people that lived there

I came home and closed the door

Recently

started working from home

Started realising a lot of my friends were near by

Started going to the community Group

Started to make new friends

Started finding new ways to express myself through art

This, this is my home - Redfern
