Thomas’ Ancestory


My Ancestory

Living in Scotland
Wind whistling through the air
Waves crashing against the shore
Sea air filling your lungs
The sweetest of smells
Nervous but excited
Moving away

I looked out for a final time at the waves crashing against the shore. The wind whistled through the morning air. We were moving to Hull today. I was nervous but excited at the same time. How most people feel at the start of a new adventure.

A small tear formed in my eye as I pulled open the car door, with a clang.

Living in Scotland
Moving to Hull
Tears in my eyes
Nervous and excited
Moving for job
Leaving everything known
Leaving everything loved
Leaving everything behind
Get into car
Close the door
Nine years old.
