Firefighting

By Adalberto M.
Grade 9, Florida

On a wonderful sunny morning day.
Going to work feeling grateful and true.
Hearing the alarm, listen to what they say.
Fire burning mad melting metal blue.
Rushing to the destination a light,
Shining so bright glowing like fire red.
Don't give up, Donít back down, without a fight.
Put out those flames save those soon to be dead.
With darkness around there might not be hope.
As time goes by hope searches a for soul.
Tie knots hard, make them bind into a rope.
Realize the danger, search for a hole.
Firefighting, dangerous, is my plan.
If you seek the thrill you'll become a fan.
