Nice free-verse poem. As for an entry into the "The Life He Almost Lived" contest, it seems you have written about the life you DID live. Great job on the piece; storyline is very interesting. It's a heroic job that demands respect of those doing it. Good luck in the contest. God bless and hugs, Susanne

Thank you yes I can say I did live that life, I would not changed it for anything. It was job I woke up for each day to just see what would come my way that day. I loved living outdoors and in small towns, that is why I live in one now. we have about 850 people here. but go 60 miles e w s n=e we have bigger towns cities.
That's a very nice tribute to firefighters and a sweet surprise end. I can see a great purpose here and you express it well. However, there are some grammar and punctuation errors which distract from it. See if you can fix those.
