Remember When

by graypoet

Some have asked if one can remember
Where were you when things changed
When a world stopped for a moment
Because someone showed out deranged.

Remember when the only topic covered
When there was only a single thought
How could something like this happen
Remember that a president has been shot.

So much has changed since that day
Looking at a black and white tv screen
Who would have thought life so valueless
So much now on those screens to be seen.

Some aspects of life are better now
But innocence itself is rarely found
Back when time stopped and tears fell
Because a shell casing fell to the ground.
