Inside Our and Back Again’ Poems

  • Imagine that you are a refugee from this specific time and place in history. You, like Ha and the real refugees we have read about, have been forced to flee your home country for your safety. On your own, write two free verse poems similar to Ha’s diary entries in the novel Inside Out & Back Again.


The first poem will be an “inside out” poem. For this poem, consider these questions:

  • What hardships did you face in your country?

  • Why did you decide to flee your country?

  • What was it like for you after you fled?

  • Where did you go?

  • Where did you find help?

  • Where did you settle?

  • How your life was turned “inside out”?


The second poem will be a “back again” poem. For this poem, consider these questions:

  • What adaptations have you made as you settle into your new home?

  • What are you mourning from your old life?

  • How is your identity changing?

  • How are you coming “back again”?
