A Quiet Home

This home is quiet
Something I myself
Do not understand
From a family of five
And before that
Being shuffled about
Between family to family
This stillness foreign
I do my best
I know all in life
Has a sort of start
So for now at least
I will enjoy this peace
For before long
Cries at night will come
And my family
Will have begun
And yet again
In my element
A quiet home
Will be a distant dream
