Here is the poem


I was commissioned to write a poem to the DaCapo Chamber Choir in Toronto, Canada for their 20th anniversary.

The theme of the event is { The Refugee Experience }.

Their event will take place in early March 2019. I can’t wait to hear and see the production when my poem is sang in Choral Music. I am utterly and completely honored to have been selected.
