Another Chance

A hungry smoke engulfs

Fills lungs

Stings eyes

But fear is the tar

That clogs the paths to breath.


I survived

And just before my world turned

Temporarily from black

To hospital white

That very moment

I understood home

But it was so far away.


I will remember

The flames

The terror

The death

Some frantic, others silent, frozen

Like monuments

The no chance to say


Thank you



And I will never forget

that I discovered home

when I saw statues die.
