PERHAPS, OR NOT

It is certain that they are coming,
and you assume or hope it is for me,
but what if they are coming for you?

You think that they will not find you
but they know where you are,
so where will you try to hide?

You think that you will be safe,
that they will ignore you, that you
can hide, but if they find you
what will happen, at what cost?

Will you be ready, will you stand
and oppose them or reluctantly
welcome them when they refuse
to leave, demand more, demand all?

Perhaps it is me they will come for
and you need not worry, perhaps
they will stop now and not come, but
can you live in a world of perhaps?
