Another Day - Poem by Jacob Courtney

Another Day

It was a day like many others that I woke up going about
My normal things. I dressed for work told my family bye
That I loved them. As I walked to the door I could hear them
Say the same as they got ready for the day. As I traveled I
Kept this uneasy feeling something was different about this day.
As I closed my eyes I could see circles with colors. At first I
Could not understand what it was what it meant. They were
Blue and one was red. Then I looked to the sky much like
Everyone else for there was a light so bright it made the
Sun seem so dim by comparison. The ground shook with
Opening of a mighty roar from this light. People began
To scream they began to run but to where do you run
From the one who knows all. Some stood fast reaching
Their hands above almost rejoicing for they had no
Fear only tears of joy. Finally what I saw made sense
The dots was my family and the color showed me
Where they stood. I had an opportunity to save
One of the people I had loved most. I didn't though
I closed my ears, blinded my eyes, and I had bound
My lips thinking that today was just another day.
