You sit there, aghast
Shocked at the scene
That lies before your eyes
At the moment that seemed:
The wreckage of metal,
Skin, blood, and tears
Of life and death,
Pain and suffering,
Once alive with hope
Memories come flooding back
The realization, of the moment
The hurt, regret, and longing
To join the ones who have fallen
But also a voice comes up to your mind
It says, "It was not your fault.”
It was not your fault,
That they have fallen,
It’s not your fault
That you have survived
