STORM (A Love Story)


Scene 1: Daylight

In these grey days

of doubt

of the melancholy

you can’t quite explain

as you watch innocence and its laughter

tarnished by the assault of anger

heard in the distant thunder

and in the urgent cry of duty, calling

lifting you higher

to where the clouds of violence hover

like vultures over the raging plain of battle

where you will sacrifice everything you ever loved

just to settle

like the petal of a flower, plowed

into the ground by the force of a hurricane

Scene 2: Twilight

It is said, love is truly seen in selfless giving

and for those who would give everything

just so that we could gain

we may still hear their voices

whispering in every drop of falling rain

reminding us of the price that they paid

the day that freedom came
