The hook / Poem by Nancy Kan

Poem by Nancy Kan
The hook
This hook
Binds me to this world
And the worlds of past.
Holding this hook
I looked towards the future
And permeate to the ether.
Hinged to this hook
I grow my roots
Beneath the surface of the earth
Deep down
And I spread my shoots
High in the sky.
Through this hook
I am centered
I have a reference point
However far I go
I know my belonging.
Away From This hook
I may wander,
But deep within me
I know my home
My first ever home
That was my hook
My mother…
