Watch it all burn down
To the ground the ash falls.
At your feet the embers still are,
Living and waiting for a breath of air.
Our soldiers run into the battle field.
Armed with all they can they fight.
To save the civilians and the houses,
To win the battle,
And keep us safe.
Most people are scared.
Some are afraid for them,
If only they are safe themselves.
People hope for the houses,
And for the civilians.
Very few remember the people fighting.
Our guardian angels.
Very few people remember the animals.
The creatures without care.
The ones left behind because they mean nothing.
The air comes,
Letting the embers breathe again.
Now awakened from their sleep,
The sparks fuel a new flame,
Growing to destroy the trees around it.
A family cries,
Their house is gone.
All they knew,
all they had,
destroyed by the hungry fire.
They saved their pets.
They saved their lives.
Nothing else matters more than that.
They pray because they can.
Because they have nothing else.
