That’s How It Was

For I have seen the darkness here

And laughed in its face without fear

Innocence meaning I am still alive

Reaching out to do more than survive

Yet knowing that it can end with a flash

Taking my life away without a splash

Actions and words and thoughts all at once

Leaping up and about as my mind will bounce

Everything is not like the stories.
