Youthful Days

Under the watchful eyes of the death-bearing window,
I quivered in silence,
holding my hands as though there is no tomorrow.
I shook my head in understanding,
in truth, none was apparent,
But I knew not what to think, less to act.
I was afraid from the raid;
it eats everything, dead or alive,
Save me, I want a nonviolent future.
