Do you know that feeling

when you're in a nightmare

and nothing bad has happened yet

but you know it's a nightmare

You can feel it in your gut

you become paranoid, scared

You can't help but constantly

wonder when the next bad thing

will happen

Where will it come from?

Who will do it to you?

You start to realize

This is hopeless

So hopeless

So terrifying

So awful

That it can't be real

This can't actually be your life

You realize you need to wake up

 

So what do you do

When you're already awake?

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
