I am one who wholeheartedly believes in showing kindness, thankfulness and gratitude.
But, there are days I need to be more, much more, I need to be a dragon: fierce, relentless, strong, powerful, self-reliant, who is able to burn a path for myself to tread.
How else am I to live ill, every – single – day, and still go on!?
Today I choose to be the dragon!
Taking flight soar as I please
Shooting fire below
To make my path more at ease
i stand outside as the storm begins to rage
the thunder rolls in sending animals scattering,
yet i don’t move,
shaking the earth under my feet,
my body quakes with fear as the world around me appears to shatter into pieces,
strikes hits too close leaving me cowering in a heap,
can i within stand the storm,
can i endure the constant barrage of raging winds and ravishing rains that beat at my body……..
no place to run,
no place to hide,
not only from the storm but from myself.
i am soaked to the bone,
cold to the touch,
immense fear engulfs my mind
is shelter worth searching for,
my soul cries out for comfort,
yet, do i need saving?
alone in the water it stood
tall, strong and fearless
ravaged by wave after powerful wave
as if the water’s deepest desire was to bring her crashing down
she bravely faced each torrent
as the waves wore at the surface
her strength flickered
but her beauty remained
