I WAS HIT BY A CAR


I was hit by a car, I was completely numb,

I was hit by a car, I was stunned.

I was completely hollow,

I felt nothing inside, I was completely shallow.

I had no feeling, I could not speak,

I was frozen in time, like a mountain peak.

I could not even cry,

that's how I felt that day,

everything passed before me, like leaves falling away.

Like the spring wind that is bitter sweet,

this memory I forever will keep.

How sad I truly was for I could not cry,

I don't know why, I don't know why.

I was hit by a car just a few minutes before,

it was like a dagger it tore and tore,

into my soul it would leave a scar,

I had just been hit by a car it had run over my thumb.

I was hit by a car, I was completely numb.
