originated complication

open your eyes to the
red smoky clouds and see
inside yourself the danger that we
get when the tides of nature have shifted
introduce the damage and terror that follows
nearer to communities than ever before
as the evacuations have already begun
time is racing when you need to leave
each layer of fear is worse like
driving through smoke with all your belongings
coasting slow down rocky danger
over each ridge more haze and sharp corners
most people stay safe and at home but
places in danger have difficult
lasting effects when the flames come close
i can threaten with the words of
crackles and pops and heat which is
almost comforting when camping but now is horrifying
throwing all valued things down into soil or
into the air in a disabling darkened gas form
only the strength of spirit can help
now we find out who are the true heroes
