Take Me Home

This poem was written after I got back from the UK, I didn’t post it last Thursday because I was busy and forgot! So here it is, it’s my little effort at expressing how I feel as an expat.

Take me home.

Home to the rat race
Where the shops are big,
Busy and bustling.

Take me home.

Home to technology,
Where people tweet,
Telephone and text.

Take me home.

Home to England,
Where I can live,
Love and learn.

Take me home.

Home to my heart,
Where I feel safe,
Settled and satisfied.

    This is so good – you can really feel that you are a little homesick, and it sort of shows the difference between there and here. Thank you for linking to Prose for Thought and for all your amazing support this year xx
