1950's Suitcase

By Krista Ozolina, 1st year.

Object No. 95 Emigrant's suitcase, 1950s
National Museum of Ireland - Country Life

An empty suitcase with broken seams,

Full of memories, hopes and dreams.

Travelling to places above and beyond

Around the world, and back, twice

Searching for a better life with my mother’s advice.

Emigrating again to a brand new place

With another frown upon my face.

Leaving again in search of dreams,

With my empty suitcase breaking at the seams.
