“I do not want to be an immigrant”

This poem was inspired by a very special book I’ve been re-reading this week, written in exile by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, entitled Letter to a Hostage, in which the famed pilot and children’s book author wrote about his worry for his friends living in Nazi-occupied France. Although he is most famous for writing the children’s classic The Little Prince, it is his WWII writings that seem most relevant today.
