Seeker

Poem from A Kid in My Class by Rachel Rooney

 

Eyes as wide as continents brim wih the water between.

Seeks a different future. Looks back on what has been.

 

Mouth seeks another language. Shapes a different air.

Unfamiliar classroom words. The other, whispered prayer.

 

Heart seeks home. One it left and one it took along.

Echoes in the distance. Skips to a playground song.
