Firefighter - Poem by Kristina Fleissner

On the outside
Looking up
Crashing through the door
Looking through the smoke and fire
For the stairs
You sprint towards them
Pounding up them you go
You check your radio
To see what floor people are on
The 8th you captain says back
Your on the 6th now
Keep going you tell yourself
7 is right ahead
Finally EIGHT
Captain I'm here
You look around for the body
Under the mattress you find it
Throwing it over your shoulder
You sprint
Down the stairs
Out to the paramedic
The person is in minor pain
Relief fills your body
