There’s a buzzing, a ringing, a high-pitched monotone,
And a tingling, a crippling, an unpleasant sensation.
It’s a lightning that struck me and stopped the beating in my chest,
Or the worst hangover to be pulled over and asked to take a test.
It’s like a hurricane, an earthquake and a tsunami rolled into one.
Like a death on a birthday, a tragedy to take away all the fun.
Now I know what it feels like to be blind and not see the stars
And how dreadful it is to be a soldier in the middle of a war.
