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,
falling, falling.
There is nothing for me to hold on to,
I can only fall
until I fall
into place.
