The Passing Storm


Waiting for the storm to roll in
I found a feeling deep within
A little bit of pain and beauty
All mixed together and flowing through me

Thunderous clouds came my way
A little bit of lightning and rain
Building up a surging power
Making its way through my darkest hour

A little bit of laughter and tears
A little bit of hopes and fears
All washed away and made new
I've got something I gotta do

The storm came and passed
Nothing is made to last
But I think I can last little more
There's so much to live for

    A nice poem, a nice comparison of the passing storm with the goings on of one's own life.
    The storm came and passed
    Nothing is made to last
    But I think I can last little more
    There's so much to live for
    Yes, there is so much to live for...well written indeed! (Report) Reply

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
