Adopted home

Constanze Magnolia Shuruq Josting

Berlin, Deutschland


When the plane lands
The warm embrace
Of your cold winter air greets me

I only understand one of two languages
Much is new to me
The walls of snow
The huge supermarkets
The big cups
So much sugar in the coffee

Two years later, I return
It’s stormy (again)
I arrive (again)
I leave (again)

Montreal, love it all, second call


Constanze Magnolia Shuruq Josting (17)

attended the Bertha von Suttner High School. She is now teaching German in Palestine and learning Arabic there. She would like to take African and Asian Regional Studies at university. Her wish is that getting involved should not be seen as optional, but as a responsibility.
