Pillars of red,

Closing in,

Screams of pain,

Filtering in.

Smoke billows,

Through the air,

Turning blue skies dark,

This isn't fair.

Everything I hold dear,

Fighting for our lives,

Children crying,

Need the distraction.

Looking through,

A smoky haze,

Seeing people run,

Praying they don't die.

Screams fly,

From our mouths,

Shielded from,

The fiery wall.

Water thrown,

Upon my frame,

Dousing flame,

Producing blackened skin.
