The Storm


It’s all around me…

Huddled under the umbrella you have given me,

And I’m hoping for a break in the downpour

But it keeps coming…

The clouds are dark and threatening,

Calling my name, laughing at my expense.

I scream STOP but nothing happens;

My eyes are closed, praying for refuge

As the ground I stand on gives in to defeat.

It’s gone, everything I have known gone…

And I’m helpless again,

Held by the One that gave me life.
