Gunshots in the distance

All around me is doom

And I question my existence

Each gun is evil, a devil

Controlling its owner’s mind

Each on a different level

Making its owner blind

They shoot bullets into the air

Making me shudder

I think, this isn’t fair

And I hug my mother

This happens every day

I am used to it by now

The sky is a dull gray

And I think, how did this happen, how?

I once got to see them fighting

Bullets and bombs bolting back and forth

And there was lightning

So I walked back home, questioning the fight’s worth

I was woken up at the middle of the night

My mom said we had to go

Where? When? Why? What about the fight?

My mom said that soon I would know

So we left, me, my brother, and my mom

We were out of the town before it was dawn

Mom said we were going somewhere calm

And just like that, we were gone
