Meg’s Poem

Hull
Why here?
Pin on a map
It’s my life now
Home

Walking on the expansive Wolds
Skies as far as the eye sees
Breathing the exhilarating, golden air

Leaving

Where to I go?
What can I take?
No time to pack
It’s just me!
What will happen?
Where are my babes?
Will I see this place again?
My heart beats with fear
My neighbours press round me
Can I keep up with the crowd?
My body is tired
I need to rest
But they press on
Will we find shelter?
Will there be home?
