The Road Less Traveled

Aren't you scared?
I didn't know.
I had to think about it.
I watched the dark dessert horizon, lit up with artillary.
Non-stop... brighter than...I don't know what...as far as the eye could see... loud and unrelenting.
War
No, I'm not. 
I was just as suprised and confused by this as he was.
Are you?  
Yeah, were in a war!  Your really not scared?
No,  it's exciting.  I know, it's crazy.   
I just can't believe I'm really here...wathcing this.  
No one's  ever know what this is like.
I'm really here...wathcing a real live war...it's like surreal or somethin'.  Like I'm not really here.
He shook his head and walked away.
I was fascinated. 
I don't know how long I stood there,  absorbing the sights and sounds, wondering how the hell I landed myself there.
The next morning it was over.
Wow!
There's definitely something to be said for taking the road less traveled.
