I was an EMT for a number of years.....this poem is a by-product of a night full of flashbacks and was written about 4 am earlier this year. I hope no one will mind nor be disturbed by it.

EMT's Nightmare



Lights flashing...sirens screaming..

Working on broken bodies, trying not to think
Trying just to do

Wondering how could this be ?

Hear the pitiful cries and moans of the wounded and dying
echoing thru the night.

Now...a new sound arises from the darkness
A cry...of hope, of rage and defiance..

An angel appears, clad in the purity of faith and hope.
The cries of the wounded quiet slowly as the angel walks by..

You gaze in wonder as the broken bodies are healed

You hear the angel's voice...
and tremble at the sound as it flows through you...

ARISE ! I am hope...I am life..

No more shall this be !

Then.....
You awaken and hear..

the screams and the sirens...again

MEANING



A Man waits a Life time.
For an Answer to a Question
that was never Asked.For a
Moment that Swirls through
Eternity.Like a Single drop
of Water into a Pond.Where
the Eye records Movement,but
the Meaning can only be Caught
by the Soul.The Drop returns
from Whence it came,but Man
can only Hope to achieve the Same.
