I Miss My Home So Much

"I Miss My Home So Much" —Edris, 15

 

Growing up in Ethiopia
Playing soccer in the dirt
Wearing plastic shoes
And a white T-shirt

 

Tricking up my friends

When I kick that ball
I pass it down the field
Like it's against the law

 

I miss my home so much

I want to go back home

I want to go back home

 

I miss my home so much

I want to go back home

I want to go back home

 

I dribble and I kick
The ball, it hits the pole
Everybody yelling my name
And me, I take a roll

 

I get up off the ground

The sky, it looks like rain
I kick it in the goal
Hurray, I have won the game

 

I miss my home so much

I want to go back home

I want to go back home

 

I miss my home so much

I want to go back home

I want to go back home

 

I miss my home so much

I want to go back home

I want to go back home

 

I miss my home so much

I want to go back home

I want to go back home

 

I miss my home so much

I want to go back home

I want to go back home

 

I miss my home so much

I want to go back home

I want to go back, back home

 

Back home

Back home

Back home

Back home
