Thoughts of Migration

New world,

new life,

that’s what I wanted

to see,

unforeseen problems,

old dreams,

that’s what

life wrote.

The airport was

like a gate,

but I didn’t know

if it led to heaven or hell,

uncertainty suggested

to return,

hope pushed


Migration is the flight

of a bird

across a foreign sky,

only future knows

if wings will be driven

by friendly winds

or will you end up

like Icarus.

by Norbert Góra
