“I Fear No More”


I fear no more lightning

Flashes dancing around me white

As I sit here in solitude

Writing another poem

In strive to please the self

Every day

In stormy weather now

With another storm raging in my heart

Like nature

In mid winter and rough weather

So malevolent and oh so dark


By chance

Or by nature

Like waves

It might change course and leave

As it brush upon my thoughts

Towards the pebbled shore of my soul

Mocking me in silence

And make my thoughts


As I sit here in solitude

Thinking about
