Home by Warsan Shire.


This breaks my heart into pieces every time.




Some of my favourite lines are:

'No one would put their children in a boat unless the sea is safer than the land.'

'No one spends days and night in the gallbladder of a truck feeding on newspaper unless the miles travelled mean something more than journey.'

'Maybe it’s because the blow is softer than a limb torn off.'

'The insults are easier to swallow than rubble, than bone, than your child’s body in pieces.'

'No one leaves home unless home is a sweaty voice in your ear, saying 'leave, run away from me now. I don't know what I've become.''
