Journey Back to East Africa

My name is Theresa, I love to write and read poetry. My favourite poet is Billy Collins. I am mainly inspired to write by everyday happenings or feelings, and I often write with some humour or sarcasm. My travel experiences have also influenced my writing, some of my favourite places to travel haveā€¦

Nervous anticipation
flowing through my veins,
stronger than blood.

Expectations screaming
in my mind,
louder than words.

Will the fantasy fall short?
Illusions shattered,
broken pieces of my life.

Or, will I return
to a place that will still feel like home,
to the cradle of mankind,
where my soul will be at ease?
