“I don’t know what to think / I don’t know if I should cringe / I don’t know if I should cry / I don’t know if I should be afraid.”
I don’t know what to think
I don’t know if I should cringe
I don’t know if I should cry
I don’t know if I should be afraid.
I don’t know.
I don’t know
All I know is that it happened
and it left people
And that’s that.
Death is like a pebble dropping in a lake.
It’s a small pebble, but it leaves multiple ripples in the water.
Death spreads like ripples in a lake.
One single death can cause so many people to cringe
so many people to cry
so many people to be afraid.
One death can spread like a wildfire.
I don’t know whether to laugh
to be confused
I just know two people died
But the thing about death
is that just like a pebble
it causes ripples in a lake
but eventually the ripples will subside
and the pebble
will sink to the bottom
bury itself beneath the sand and
