SMOKE IS FILLING MY LUNGS
THERE’S FIRE BEFORE MY EYES
I’M YELLING FOR HELP BUT NO ONE HEARS MY CRIES
I’M PRAYING TO GOD “PLEASE DON’T LET ME DIE”
I CAN FEEL THE FLAMES TOUCHING MY SKIN
I’M HOPING & PRAYING THIS ISN’T HOW IT ENDS
THE FIRE IS MAKING IT HARD TO SEE
THE SMOKE IS MAKING IT HARD TO BREATHE
MY BODY IS GETTING WEAKER
I CAN BARELY SPEAK
SUDDENLY DARKNESS TAKES OVER ME
WHEN I OPEN MY EYES MY MOM IS LOOKING AT ME SAYING
“STINK IT WAS ONLY A DREAM”
