Poem About Crisis

Updated on June 12, 2015

Life is so short, so treat everyday like it's your last.

We were robbed

Let me tell you a story that happened to me

We were living in a trailer park, in a camper see

It was late one night, we were getting blowed

When he answered the door a nine was showed

It was life or death, it was just that quick

We were scared as hell, the air felt thick

My man gave them his wallet and showed them a check

We begged for our life that I will never forget

I started praying real hard, that's all I could do

I think you'd do the same if that happened to you

As fast as it happened in an instant they were gone

We couldn't even call the cops cause they took our phone

We had to leave, so he grabbed a knife

We barely escaped with our life

Never slept there for another night

With a gun in your face it's hard to fight

Moved to the other side in an empty trailer

I wonder if my man felt like a failure

Here one day, you could be gone tomorrow

With your family real sad and filled with sorrow

Live life right you can't be geuss'en

Heaven or Hell shouldn't be a question

    Yes this did in fact happen to me and my boyfriend. It was the scariest thing I had ever gone through. I thank God everyday for just being alive. It was like every second I was staring into the barrel of that gun, I was waiting to die. It's made me a stronger and more aware of a person.
