Alone And Scarred

In darkness, hides the scarred mind.

In my mind, I must walk
Alone and scared, I can not talk 
About the crash that killed a kid
I tried to help, I really did
First on scene of that terrible sight
I cant forget that awful night.
People scream and yell at me
he’s in the car, cant you see
The car is fully engulfed in flame
They curse at me, and me they blame
In my mind I know he’s gone
But where’s the driver, I must move on
I search the faces with the fires light
I yell above the horrific sight
Where’s the driver is he alright
They point up towards the road
He’s lying there, injured I’m told
I take to running up the hill
I know I’m moving , yet feel so still
My lungs are burning, my heart pounds hard
Of that night , my mind is scarred
I reach the driver, in pain he lays
Go help my buddy is all he can say
Unable to tell him the awful truth
for he still too is just a youth
His clothes are burnt into his skin
My tears start falling deep within
The ambulance is here , to my relief
Their time on scene is short and brief
I help them care and load this man 
I try to help, I hold his hand
In my mind, I must walk 
Alone and scared, I can not talk
About the crash that killed a kid
I tried to help, I really did
