It was like being in a sizzling hot frying pan

The fire frizzled as it climbed the walls

It hissed and spat like an angry cat

Thick black smoke filled my nose

The next thing I heard was a great big boom!

People said I was a bully

Picked on kids for their money

But on that day I changed

I felt what it was like to be a victim

To something unstoppable

I was only one to survive

That stupid little house fire
