So Here Comes The Storm - Poem by Suki Nakamura

so here comes the storm that you have predicted
many will be taken away in that boat of death
taking lives of young men and women
and even children

i do not fear. I have closed the doors and windows.
i have a pillow in my head. A blanket enough for me.

and then i sleep soundly
i have dreams waiting for me.

let me die inside my sleep, if that be your wish.
