~*~ The Storm ~*~

by Aaron

I'll run into the dark raging storm,
through the wall of heavy rain and chaos
masking the road ahead
to find what landscape awaits
on the other side.

Others will follow me
and run to their unknown futures.
We will all follow each other
into this uncertain passage.

And when the last drop has fallen,
when the harsh sky overhead breaks away,
for some of us
the sun will make the world around us
sparkle and feed the growth of life...

and some will join the mud,
struck down by their failed dreams and bad choices.

But we will have all gone through it together...
no matter what happens,
we all made it into the storm
