What we’re reading today…

 

 

“No one leaves home unless
home is the mouth of a shark
You only run for the border
when you see the whole city running as well

Your neighbors running faster than you,
breath bloody in their throats
The boy you went to school with,
who kissed you dizzy behind the old tin factory,
is holding a gun bigger than his body
You only leave home when home won’t let you stay…” ~ Warsan Shire
