Still a Home


The beautiful conch longs for a hand to hold,
But the hermit crab says “don’t take away my home. “
The sand dollar is pulled from the darkness it’s always known,
It says, “I’m breathing, don’t you know?”
The starfish is a beacon of hope away from home,
It says, “I’m not a souvenir, you hear?”
The urchin waits to prick your toes,
The ocean is still a home.

I'm an eighteen year old writer and reader. I'll be attending Albion College in the fall majoring in English and Secondary Education. I love cats and old books more than anything else in the world.
