"Sometimes there is a fire that burns within. Unable to be put out, it brings sadness and tears, but those tears are what is able to put the fire out"

I walk in the school hallways,

Delivering for the librarian


The principal calls lockdown

I run through the corridors 

and back to the library 

I hide in a closet

and the principal calls

all clear

Later that night

I hear that nationwide threats 

are upon our schools

Nobody will bring their backpack

on Dec 17th

Fear builds up inside me

About our nation

And whether

we are safe

I am honeslt scared to go to school today. This is the second time something like this has happened this year.
