This poem was written in the aftermath of the tragic blaze in Worcester that claimed the lives of five worcester firefighters in December of 1999. Its my tribute to heros. Fiery Angels Despite the odds, Despite the peril, I will risk the chance To give my life To save your life. Unhesitating, charging into an inferno, Choked with smoke, Concealing my brothers, Stricken down. Through the black soot Streaked with tears and fingerprints, I'll seek you and On these insulated wings We'll fly away, Together, mingled with the Prayers and ashes. Carried on the shoulders Of our own kind... Angels, Into eternal safety.
