Featured Poem for August

Vacation!

 

Vacation

takes me places,

      where

I can't ever say

I've never been

                     before

          again.

 And when a place is

different, I am

           different too.

I can look outside

and in

                      and still enjoy

          the view.

 

Home is

only one place

               here,

I am surrounded by the same,

                    expected to wear certain brands

         and always act my name.

 

Vacation

takes me places,

               there

I shop for the unknown.

Try on something new.

                    Pocket the change,

and bring it home.
