I can’t understand.
I remember that day, As if it was today, The lights, The sirens, Hoping to God it wasn’t him. I paced, Back and forth, Back and forth, I couldn’t understand. I waited for answers. Who was it? What happened? The doorbell rang. Two officers stood, talking. I couldn’t understand. An accident had happened. He was out with his friends that night. My brother was gone, They all were. I fell into my father’s arms. Wondering why him? Why our family? What happened? I couldn’t understand. Why was a text, More important than my brother’s life. Why do people still text and drive? What text matters more than someone’s life? I can’t understand.
