“Home” by Warsan Shire

An important poem for our time.

You’ve probably already seen this on your Facebook feed, a poem about displacement and the refugee experience, but I  post it here for you nonetheless, a reminder that these refugees are people: mothers, children, brothers, sisters, husbands, and wives. And that home is something we have taken for granted but no longer can. Read it here: “Home” and then add your voice to that of creation, not destruction.
