All I've ever known

All I've ever known

A Poem by Toasty (Erin)

All I've ever known was war

All it did was torn

Through homes and streets

Keeping eveyone seprate

When I was sixteen

I saw everything that couldn't be unseen

I saw the dogs tear him up

I stood there trying not to tear up

He was gone to the unknown

I was still stuck the hell that is all I have known

Two months later they gave me a gun

Said shoot as much as you can, son

I did

Twelve gone in under a minute

I now sit here

Alone in here

My leg is missing

Everyone keeps fighting

I don't worry

I'm five days

I won't ever have to see the light of day

Ever Again
