Ready

I will weep for you

as a willow kisses the ground

I will hold your hand

as I lift the weight of your shoulder

Hear my shallow breath

count to 10

leave your bags

your not coming with me this time.

lock the door and lose the key

seal all the widowns with shutters

im headed for the hills

im headed where the sea meets the sun

hear my heart racing

the children are laughing

the adults are crying and embrasing eachother

time to let go.

i might not come home.

im going on a train to fight for our banner.

100 women, men, and children

it's time to go.

War I am ready.

This poem is about: 
My family
