The fireworks were awesome, but the aftermath was not
Everyone was having fun but I was scared
I sit not even thinking of what could happen
They were bright and loud
They were very high up over by the clouds
I feel my eye start to blink without about control
And then it was black.
I can hear the bangs and pops but I see nothing
I can hear my friends cheer and clap but there is nothing to see
By now I know what is happening because I feel my hand shake,
It is in my pocket because I don’t want anyone to know.
The fireworks are ending but this attack is not
I can see now but shaking won't stop
My friends ask me if I am ok but I cannot speak
But suddenly it all stops.
My friends believe I’m fine because I say I am, but I am not
And if this keeps happening again my life is not the same
So I stand here a lie
Because it didn’t happen.
