A poem about what it would be like during a tornado. a fictional poem
( Tornado Warning )

You could hear the sirens, the air was so dead still
My heartbeat was beating so fast, as quick as a drill
The adrenaline was rising, my kids started to scream
You could see it getting closer, this wasnt a dream

We ran toward the shelter, the door was so hard to open
I prayed that it would miss us, no damage I was hoping
The wind was getting louder, glass breaking was intense
Tears starting falling, as I held the door with suspense

I heard people yelling, we wished that they were spared
Then there was silence, and all we felt was so scared
We opened the door, and all we saw was the bright sky
Only foundation was left, all I whispered was why

I grabbed all my children and hugged them so tight
Then looked at the damage, that was before us that night
Some people perished, alot hurt, a day full of mourning
I beg that you take shelter, when theres a tornado warning
