The UK Housing Crisis & the 20+ Something Man

 

They say,

 

Home is where the heart is… right?

 

No they’re wrong, home is where a sense of belonging is

 

It’s the moment we fall

 

We rise

 

The in-between where no one can see

 

It’s the family events, memories

 

Pictures stacked across the shelf

 

They hold true value, that no one else owns

 

But it’s being lost

 

We laugh and joke of rent… house pricing

 

But we’re really laughing at the feeling of being inadequate

 

 

 

I can’t justify the ridiculous house prices

 

Or…

 

Renting in a un-homely already furnished box

 

Living under demands,

 

Locked under the thumb of a constant landlord

 

I know right now it feels helpless.

 

But its okay…

 

I’ll continue to save,

 

Because they’re not gonna stop me

 

You see, I have a vision

 

A family, a career… building the memories of the unknown

 

I know I’ll step foot one day

 

Chest out, eyes wide

 

An interior made by me, and maybe even a family.

 

There are people… and places out there

 

Willing to support

 

And they see my vision too

 

Over and over again people laugh

 

Can I really build a family and own a home in my 20’s?

 

There’s a frustration I’ve never felt before

 

But again, it’s okay

 

Because I know one day, I’ll have my own place

 

A place I know… I can call my own
