Stormy Day


Stormy Day
By: Monica Renata
Today it rained
It rained so hard
It rained so much that all of the water washed away all of the happiness on my face
And just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse…
Thunder…
And Lightning…
The two scariest things in the world to me started to occur
Cowered in a corner of fear
I sat
I wished
I prayed to be somewhere else
But I remained here
Surrounded by my reality which was not going to flee
I had make a breakthrough
I had to finally stand up for me
But in the dark
As I was in that pouring rain
My heart skipped a beat
I was deathly afraid
But how shall I live life
If I am afraid to?
How can I be happy
If I’m afraid to do what I must do?
So I wipe away all the tears on my face
And realize that this storm is something I will have to embrace
I can’t let it hold me down
I can’t let it break me
I can’t be scared of where I am destined to be
So forward I march
Despite the rain and the thunder
Lightning strikes ahead
But I decide to march on further
Into my future
Into the place where I’m supposed to be
Through the stormy day
I have to realize that like this it won’t always be
Today it rained
It rained so hard
It rained so much that all of the water washed away all of the happiness on my face
And just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse…
The sun shined brightly in the corner of my eye
The lightning subsided and the rain stopped
And when I finally looked around to see
I realized that happiness was what surrounded me
Oh stormy weather
Thanks for making me see
That throughout my darkest battles I can make it
Even when I don’t believe
For I am more stronger than I sometimes believe
I just have to follow the light that resides in me
