In Search of Refuge

"And if one day we go back to the places we escaped, will we find the things we left behind, or only a house of mirrors?" (refugees climbing through fence IMG_9321.jpg) Refuge © 2017 (Inspired By: Athens, Greece; Created In: Cairo, Egypt) Melissa Diamond, Pen on Canvas Paper

“We saunter through the day

through routines that numb the pain

and motions that carry fleeting joy

And we wonder

If one day we go back to the places we escaped

Will we find the things we left behind

Or only a house of mirrors?”
