Said I wouldn't have the strength to thrive
The waves came crashing down
Water was thrashing all around
The wind showed no mercy to the sea
Lightning and its thundering boom surrounded me
I pressed on awaiting my rainbow
For little did they know
While they tried to make me conform
I've always forever been the storm.
That peace they thought I should get
Can only come after getting wet
Being drenched in the storms of life
And experiencing the lessons and strife
Is the only way to get to that rainbow end
I am the storm and I have no desire to mend
Poetry written by me July 10, 2020, inspired by Storm or Ororo Munroe character from Marvel Comics, whom I have identified with since I was a kid. This poem is meant to inspire others to embrace the storms of life because that is where the lessons and rainbows come from.
