Hiroshima - Poem by Amanda Mannings

On August 6th,1945
A bomb was dropped,
A single shot, Everything was lost
This explosion could never be topped.

I saw the soldiers,
With no eyes,
It came so fast,
No time for goodbyes.

I lost my father,
And my brother that day.
How could this happen?
Make it all go away.

My families gone,
The streets are empty.
House's burned,
The waters rising inevitably.

Tonights the beginning,
Of an end.
We will forever remember
But, the hurt and pain will never mend.

-Amanda Mannings
