I decided to write my poem on a topic that has frequently been on my mind; studying abroad. I figured studying abroad would be considered an educational topic. I'll be leaving for Chile in February, and I have mixed emotions about it; nervousness, fear, longing, joy, and excitement. All of these emotions are expressed in some form in the following limerick about what it may be like on the day I leave.
The floor skids under my feet,
An unusual rhythm to which my heart beats.
A long embrace substitutes a wave;
My feet will not falter, I decide to be brave.
A smile forms under my skin,
A new adventure, soon to begin.
I find my way, surrender my slip,
And fall through my seat to a long awaited trip.
