Emigrant's Suitcase

By Aoibhe Regan, 2nd year.

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

As I get ready to go,

I watch the clock

and say goodbye to everything I know.

I have dreaded this day to come,

And now it is here I feel numb.

I have no idea if it’s the right choice

Or will I ever make it back.

My family will move on without me.

It’s time to hand in my key.

What I have done,

I know to be wrong.

So I pack my brown suitcase.

And decide to move on.
