Sleepless nights from dusk to dawn
A nomadic life is led by me,
New friends, new lives, dad’s in the army,
Fingers crossed, the first day at school,
Instant friend or a mocking fool!
Transferred again, no home to call mine,
To finish school, two years more,
I know a definite move, is in store.
Academic satisfactory, confidence nil
Never lived in one place for more
Then three years,
It’s become a routine,
I no longer have any fears.
Tomorrow, I move, yet again,
Packing bags and memories,
Happiness and pain.
