"Either I will find a way or I will make a way."

the plane has started down the runway

everything rushes past

i want to stand up and scream, 


turn around!

let me off!"

it takes a gargantuam effort

to keep my mouth



just outside my window

i see a wave breaking

there is a yearning in my stomach

for the open ocean

home isn't where you're from

it's where you make it

i have made this place my home


and i am being uprooted

The author's comments:

I wrote this on an airplane, as I flew away from the place I had called my home.  It was probably close to midnight and I had been crying since the plane took off.  This poem is for anyone who has been uprooted like me.
