The day has come. The day it changes.
Today, I am leaving my life behind in Europe to start a new one in North America. As I was born in Canada but have not lived there since I was a child, it is a strange homecoming. If you, like myself, emigrated at a young age then you will understand this peculiar sensation.
It is a truly monumental day, so I have written this haiku.
Won’t carry on here,
Metal bird flies me away,
Sad but filled with hope.
