Only you and I can help the sun rise each morning. If we don't, it may drench itself out in sorrow - Joan Baez

I seen Lincoln. I

seen smoke. I

seen cryin'. I 

seen the end of slavery. I

seen it repeat.


I seen the Wars. I

seen the Depression. I

seen Hippies. I

seen the People's Princess. I

seen her taken out.


I seen the Two buildings burn down. I

seen the Evil One.

The author's comments:

I wanted to write a format similar to Gwendolyn Brook's, "We Real Cool." The narrator is a person passing through time, and before they know it, the unexpected end came.
