I Am A Storm


I have no fear.

Why should I hide
when the sky opens up and
shouts down its rage and fury
spilling forth in oceans of tears
upon this cowering earth?

I have no need to seek shelter
from this storm.

I know its violence.
I know its tumult.
I know its angst.
I know its pain.

Storms like this are born in me.
They wail their banshee songs
from within my hollow lungs
beating their gales against my
rattling bone cage.

I have no fear.

This storm is in me.

I am a storm.
