Fall of Rome


Jessica Gomez-Espinal, 9th Grader at BCECHS


Where I grew up and once a home

what was once the mother of the world 

Will never return 



Now falling in ruins with red, gray, and white 

Dust flying everywhere left and right

People fighting everywhere 

World caught on fire 

It brought up my desire 



Where people could trade to earn cash


There goes the bridge falling down 

But I know that all is well

Because Rome will rise up again and excel
