I Wish My Life Was A Dream©

Hanging on to the rooftop of my house as it floats down the angry river

The screeching wind howls constantly between my ears

Bodies of my friends, neighbors and loved ones pass me by

I’m chilled to the bone as my clothes are soaked to my skin

My belly rumbles from days of hunger

My eyes are swollen from the tears that won’t stop flowing

I feel enraged with piercing grief

While grateful for my so called life

I crave sleep but fear I will lose my grip and be swallowed up by the river

Sleep will only bring dreams of the many lost to the storm

I can only pray now that god will have mercy on me

And all those who remain

Oh how I wish my life was a bad dream
