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 dance
like nobody is watching
I will sing
like my voice carries with it the beauty of a thousand fine-tuned melodies,
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 dance in the rain,
I will be born again.
