Forest Fire - Poem by Thirteen Tears

Walking through the forest
Walking at midnight
A fire roars behind me
What a frightful sight
It's raging through the wood
Devouring every living thing
It causes my heart pain
To see it eat a fairy ring
What could start this dreadful fire
This thing that spreads destruction
It's burning all to the ground
Thinking theres no repercussion
Its eating plants, eating life
Ruining everything
We could run away
Give up the life it's maiming
Or we could stay and fight
Try to stop this forest fire
The one thats licking at my heals
The one thats getting higher
As I run I see trees i know
They're all in the greatest pain
I see firefighters turning back
Giving forest to the flame
I wish for everything to mend
No, I wish for it all to end.
