Give me the strength to save some life
Whatever be its age.

“INSIDE OR OUT”
By Dale Barker, 2006
As the alarm rings out,
There’s a sound of a distant shout.
In the dark sky there’s a glow,
As the fire and flames start to grow.
Fear is the feeling in the air,
As everyone is starting to care.
Where was that shout?
Was it from the inside or out?
The intensity of the fire grows,
And then nobody knows.
Where was the shout?
Was it inside or out?
As the smoke grows thick,
And we started to feel sick.
The result of the shout,
Thank God it was on the out.
