Poem: Traversing the Storm

Traversing the Storm

Smoke on the horizon
Or is that the fog of today’s news?
Harbinger of times to come
The Storm is here

Destruction and carnage
Focused all around without a shot fired
Only bombs generated by Twitter
Fueling the source of the Storm

No soldiers running towards the danger
Only soldiers becoming the danger
On a shore far away
Dealing with their own Storm

I am unsure that I can hold on
Or even survive this onslaught
I reach into the nearby darkness
Seeking tribe within the Storm

And tribe will be the answer
The necessary anchor stone
To survive the tempest-like winds
Induced by the arriving Storm

Grab my hand, hold on tight
With one another we persist
As individuals and groups, we resist
The Storm we have all foreseen
