Spirit of a Warrior


What is a fire-fighter
But a man who tempts the fire
Without regard for his own lifes desire

He would walk right through the Prince of the flame
Without fear, to save lives
And his partner would do the same

Their bodies are made of flesh and bone
But their hearts are of courage and stone

A fire-fighter will continue into danger ahead
While other men would run away instead

A fire-fighter gives away his life
Day after day
Not able to be there for his children or his wife

Waiting.......Waiting to be called into service

When the bells ring
And the speaker will blair
He will go into action
Against the flames he will dare

To save property and life
Ever mindful that he may never again see his children
or his wife

Every fire-fighter should know
That when they are in the thick of the flames
God not only knows their name
He is there with them

Because God also believes in their claim
“To protect and serve”

Really enjoyed reading your thoughts. Extremely motivational!

Yes, wonderful thoughts on this topic. I'd leave out the words 'would' in a couple lines towards the beginning and just use the present tense to help enliven those lines. Watch the spelling of 'blare'. I enjoyed reading this poem. Good job!

Almost passed this by. I liked the flow of this, and as said before watch conditional tenses. The rhymes didn't seem forced and worked throughout the poem. Nice work.
