This Poems Story
I wrote this poem while sitting on the porch of my childhood home in Middlesex, NJ. There was a storm brewing that night, and it was the last night I would spend in America for a while. I had just accepted a teaching position at a failing school in the United Kingdom. I emptied my head and just started writing about what I saw around me and how I was feeling. It was the start of a new adventure for me. I hope this poem speaks to people and they share it with others.
