Someday Soon


Flash flood warnings 
blink on my phone;
rain is coming,
I'll have to look
for higher ground.

Everyone worries
over drought, disease,
terrors unknown;
no one wants
to end up trapped, 
water rising
all around.

There's no escaping
where we're born,
in a world eager
to take us down,
some together,
some alone;
it's time we learned,
we might still
be able to live,
someday soon.
