Take Me First


If they come for you once again in the middle of the night
Take me first
If they break down your door once again
Take me first
If they take you and yours away forever
Take me first
If they take you once again to the camps
Take me first
If they try to wipe us from the face of the Earth once more
Take me first
May you dwell on this Earth to the end of time
Take me first

This Poems Story

It's 1 a.m. in the morning. About once a month, around this time, a poem will come to me, in my head. I do not know why or how. I'm not sure if there is a name or description of the style of poem creation I write. Most of my poems do not divulge what the poem is about. Therefore, two different people reading a poem of mine will have two different conclusions as to the meaning of the poem. My extended family has always been a good source of inspiration for my writing.
