BEFORE WE BURN
Screaming; Ashes. The pain was murderous.
The transition from life to death, in a blink of an eye.
Deafening sirens turned into silent sobs. The burning of orange and yellow flames became the dreary sight of ebony clothing and faded white lilies.
The suffocating sight of the city crowd decreased in size of a private union of family. Cheerful, bubbly personalities became tormented and quiet.
A large house tumbled into a closed coffin covered with dry dirt flung from rusty shovels.
The burning fire ignited from a mysterious source became the catalyst of a devastating ending and a tortured beginning.
The new transitions of life after death, in a blink of an eye.
