The Storm


The Storm

Thunderstorms, they batter me
Buffeting, the tossing winds
Threatening to tear apart
Each and every crack, each rent
Hunched over, huddled and bent,
Even forced onto my knees,
I hold you within my heart
And in you, I find my peace.

I walk through the fire, ashen
Tears and grime staining my cheeks,
I know you will hold my hand,
And I’m strong even when weak
In this poisoned atmosphere
I struggle to stand, to lead,
But I hold you in my heart
And in sight of you, I breathe.

And in sight of you, I grow,
I hold myself and let go,
Even drenched in blood and sweat,
I feel spirits freshen, flow
I feel my essence strengthen,
I feel my pulse quickening
When I hold you in my heart
I feel my awakening.

The storm has not abated,
Neither has the quaking stopped
The thorny path still cuts me and
Demons flame, proclaim their wrath
Nothing has changed around us
But everything, within me
For I hold you, in my heart,
And I fight my wars in peace…


Sometimes, you don’t believe in yourself. You find yourself broken, you find yourself inadequate, unworthy. You find yourself… not good enough.

And then, someone else comes along who believes in you even when you won’t, or can’t. Someone who’s there with you every step of the way even when they’re not there. Someone who trusts you when you don’t trust yourself, someone who sees strength in you when you feel like you have none.

Someone, who loves you.

If you have someone, count them as a blessing. That’s what I do for mine.

Here’s wishing you have someone to love you too…

Love and light,

Cookie ❤
