A College Student On Erev Rosh Hashana
Poem By Anna Moriarty Lev
Tonight I know what it is to be lonely.
Tonight I wish to be anywhere but where I am.
Tonight I am sitting here,
trying to concentrate
telling myself that it's good I am doing work right now.
But I know where I should be.
You're all home,
doing the things we always do
and are busy being with each other while I'm here,
There is nothing for me to hold on to,
I can only fall
until I fall
