    Default "The Calling" Firefighter Poem

    Hey guys, here's something I've been working on for a little while. It's still fairly rough, just wanted to get some feedback... or should I say 'constructive criticism'. Hope you all enjoy


    Envied by children,
    Respected by most.
    They are like no other,
    Created unique by the Holy Ghost.

    They give their all,
    Much blood, sweat, and tears.
    With an overwhelming passion,
    Heart and soul take place of all fears.

    Their life is a risky gamble,
    Playing all cards dealt.
    The reward cannot be measured,
    But only be felt.

    They lay their lives on the line,
    To those whom they’re a stranger.
    As they fulfill their life’s purpose,
    Amidst many stages of danger.

    Their purpose becomes their life,
    With a family and brotherhood that can’t be any tighter.
    They answer their imminent calling,
    The calling of a firefighter
