The Humboldt Edge

Not the World I Used to Know

by Saundra G.

Last night was a tragedy
What went down was sad to see
But it is what it is
I guess it had to be

I wake up this morning to face a new day
With my head held down
I see the world a new way

There are people on their feet
Walking on their street
Cars still go
To and fro

Even though
All that’s so
It’s not the world that I used to know

That world was bright
Even trees felt tall
This world is dark
And I feel small
