The World Around Us

December 19, 2007
By Laura Benson, Arcadia, WI

Flashes of bright light forms
eye piercing fire that
burns all around the people.
Rocks and rubble fall and shatter
Fear of children and their families
fills the air with a great thickness.
Children scream for their mothers
as bombs go off repetadly
the feeling of the warm
skin with build up of ash
sends salty streams of tear
down my saddened face.
