The Fire

Two young men were fighting for
the pain that was divine.
The cure for all the numbness
that they held inside.

They knew they had so little time
the clock was ticking down.
There had to be a remedy
for all the feelings that they hid.

They could not stop until
their heavy task was done.
They couldn't help but feel like
their job had just begun.

But, one day while they worked so hard,
so tirelessly,
There was a fire in the lab
that consumed all you could see.

The evening came and and they
made the news, the top story of the night.
It seemed their cure had found its way,
but the cost was two young lives.

Since then, their lives have been remembered
as the ones who payed the price,
the price that was to great for any one man to bear.
