When the storms come

I wrote this poem at 1AM this morning; it is about facing adversity while maintaining one’s strength. 

When the wind blows and the clouds cry,

I will step outside and I will close my eyes,

I will not cry.

I will be

The girl that lives so anxiously within me.

When the storms come,

The rain will wash my shell away

And I will shed my skin

The rain will illuminate my soul and I will be whole


The clouds will cry to give way to the sun,

But I will smile and take what is mine.

When I close my eyes and walk through the rain,

I will be ‘born again’.
