Life and Burns

By: Michael Appleman

Living with burns are not the best
Many cannot find a way to rest

People look at us so often
We feel emotional pain from within

Looking up and praying to God
Asking him to take away Satan's rod

Other burn survivors understand
How I lost the use of my hand

My life is so different
They can see and smell the scent

Life was ok a second before
The burn injury got the highest score
