Thunder

The earth cracked each lightning bolt, highlighting the scars of the sky

I froze my mind to watch nature dancing; I quietly confessed my sin to the cries

Of each rain drop shooting the pavement indiscriminately

Singing that I am worth it, I am worth more than I give to me.

Rain masked my tears bloodied from my lies

That I tell myself each day, I am not a burden to be alive.

I inhaled deeply to shout the universe my hope.

Lightning sliced the sky again reminding me to go home

The thunderstorm called my mother on the phone

Not a good idea to roam empty, you are stronger than you know.
