Shootout

I fell in the grass
Staring at the sky
Feeling nothing
Only hearing the echoes
Of chilling screams
Thunderous shots
I wasn’t scared
Or disappointed
There was no time.
I started counting
1 . . . 2 . . .3 . . .
But I never reached 4
A boot came in view
I tried to yell in rage
I was silenced
Echoes of screaming
Thunderous shots
I smiled with joy
It was what I wanted
And it happened
My vision blackened
My body stopped
My mind relaxed
And I laughed

    Awesome poem. I like the lines ” I tried to yell in rage, I was silenced”.
