Inspired by Langston Hughes 'Harlem'

What’s it like being taken away from your safe place, a place you love and cherish?

Do you feel upset and lost,

Like your one source of happiness has been taken?

Or do you feel numb?

Do you go on about your normal day,

Or does your world stop?

Do you long for the moment when you're reconnected,

Back in your safe place?

The fear may not be present and nerves show.

Maybe it just waiting to rear its ugly face.

Or will it sink in and become your life?
