The Storm

The Storm

A Poem by XMorris91

Coming to terms that there are things in life that I cannot change, but that doesn't mean i'm willing to give up hope. Life is almost like a roller coaster ride and I strive to overcome any barrier


How can I expect myself to remedy the poison that flows though the veins of my people, but deluge my essence with its influences?

Pardon me for being ambiguous; but I want my words to be contiguous.

Seems like everything that I do goes against the grain,

But how am I supposed to know the truth when my life has been flooded by the rain.

The pain, and frustration runs deep,

Sleeping is meaningless if all my heart tells me to do is weep.

All I want to do is discover the truth,

So that I may make a future possible for tomorrow’s youth.

It can be difficult being the voice of reason in a room full of vultures,

Only wanting me to fail and fall prey to the torture.

However, no matter how much I’m under the pressure,

I’m going to continue to hold near and dear to what I treasure.


I know that every tunnel has an end and a light,

And I hope my feelings is engraved in your heart as I write.

There are so many emotions that I contain that I can’t describe them all in words,

One day those emotions will be uncaged and take flight like birds.

My words hold life like the seeds in the palm of my hand,

My love for you in unconditional and I hope you know where I stand.

Lord I know that in many ways I have been wrong,

I own up to them and here I stand like a tree…firm and strong.

So, here I am on my knees giving praise in the eye of this storm,

The iniquity of this world run deep, but your hands on my heart remain warm.

I have come to terms with my purpose on this very day,

I will not allow any obstacle to hinder my path now that I know the way.

Indeed, life throws us a lot of "stuff" and how we deal with it all determines the sort of character we are. Those who overcome adversity become stronger. The priority is living life without hurting others. Your spirituality comes through powerfully in this write. I hope you will continue writing. Lydi**
