After the storm

After the storm

The havoc is over and the sun is back
Patching up with light the heart's crack

Devastating is the scene of the aftermath
But there is a flower in the cluttering path

Though the storm was fierce and utterly cruel
The vanishing Hope got up to refuel

Deafening silence is ruling the place
But rhythm is gaining its normal pace

After every storm you are given a choice
Whether to quit or start to rejoice
