Our World

By Heather, age 13


I watch
I watch our world
I watch our world in flames
I watch our world in flames of crimson hatred

The flames
The flames they twist
The flames they twist and jump and wriggle
The flames they twist and jump and wriggle everywhere

I want
I want to run
I want to run but I知 frozen
I want to run but I知 frozen solid to the cold pavement

I need
I need to scream
I need to scream for help
I need to scream for help but my body痴 out of control

The people
The people are trapped
The people are trapped in flames
The people are trapped in flames they池e burning

I see
I see the pain
I see the pain on their faces
I see the pain on their faces and I知 frightened

I have
I have the water
I have the water to kill the flames
I have the water to kill the flames to save them

I知 frightened
I知 frightened too frightened
I知 frightened too frightened of the flames
I知 frightened too frightened of the flames to go to them

But I still have the water
