A storm is coming

Written by: Ashley Humes

A storm is coming 
near
On our faces, 
nothing but fear
Ignorance protects 
the heart of the 
young
Never knowing what 
they're among

Some shake their 
heads in disbelief
Some take cover in 
the earth beneath
Man protect woman, 
woman protect child
Objects tossed, this 
wind is wild

A cry for help is 
never heard
Every man for 
himself, it's quite 
absurd
You know the saying 
"joy comes in the 
morning"
But in their hearts 
it's still a bit stormy

They remember the 
ones they loss even 
though they are now 
apart, may they 
know they remain in 
our hearts, as life 
goes on to a new 
start

A storm is coming, a 
storm has came
The storm is over, 
lives were claimed
And the ones that 
are left will never be 
the same...
A storm is coming 
so is the pain



                                                                                     -
