Life’s Disasters

The fire crackles and burns

Like the rage deep inside of my chest.

Destroying everything that’s comes in my way

Blistering those who assume they know best.


The thunder roars and rumbles

Like the thoughts stuck inside of my head

Shouting and screaming at the decisions I’ve made

Looking forward to nothing but a journey of dread.


The hurricane twists and smashes

Like the devastating story my life has become

Sabotaging all the good I’ve ever managed to accomplish

Eradicating these memories leaving me feeling numb.


The rain pours and splatters

Like its beating down on my breaking heart

Trying to drum sense into me before it’s over

Making me aware it’s not too late for a fresh start.
