Seeking Shelter

Words are meaningless
Each syllable lost 
Drowned out by the storm around me

No escape
My fate decided
Foretold by the rain and thunder

Face up in the rain
I persevere
Hardened to the sting of each droplet

Tired eyes pan the sky
Searching for refuge
Weary from yet another deluge
