‘Over the Border’ by Maja Stolarz, Soham Village College

Being an immigrant,

Means to be different,

Leaving everything behind,

In order to find.


A new country,

In order to run free.


Carry your baggage,

And learn a new language,

No matter how difficult,

And being diffident.


The feeling of arrival,

A new place for survival,

As the fresh air hits your face,

As it’s signalling a new place.


Finally of the plane,

Never again,

Passing the warder,

Over the border.
