weathering the storm

there is a storm deep in me
          skies turn dark within my mind
a raging tsunami begging to be free
          clouds obscure the truth to find
tidal waves crashing forcibly
          lightning strikes and i am blind
battering my body for all to see
          thunder tramples my heart to grind
pain lashes out to ignore my plea
          as winds howl and i am resigned

to my fate, 
          my life, 
                    my time.

    Very nice poem, very true, but only to those with the inner strength to conquer the storm, so many don't have that. Always enjoy your poems and hope you are well.

    A reminder to me that the storm is best embraced rather than fought. Nicely said, thanks for sharing, John

    Hi Germaine, been reading a few of your poems and added u to my fav list. So whatever is going on inside, it's substance that fuels what you write. You demonstrate such a raw, open richness that I admire - Shaz
