Will the Sun Still Rise

by Laurel Steeves

Standing here, trembling with fear
The letter in hand
That is capable of changing my life in seconds
I think about all the things I will leave behind
My family
My friends
My life
These things I once took for granted
Do not taste so bitter anymore

Enclosed in this letter I ask myself
Am I brave enough to go?
Am I brave enough to stay?
This is not a letter at all
This is a death sentence
Will the sun still rise at war?
Reading the letter I realize
I will soon find out.
