This has been running around in my head all day ... and so, I write. Stupid, yeah. Can't help the way I feel ...

... . so, if i wish a storm away
from here and it causes death
and destruction someplace else,
am i ... responsible?  didn't mean to
let it go:  the butterfly get away; it flapped
its wings when the back was turned and
it escaped into the winds -- its effect
felt far and wide.  getting harder to
control, this fear . ... somehow, i
feel like the one to blame . ...

(c) 2008, Karla Dorman (2/6)

My sis and I both dreamt about my grandfather dying 2 days before he did with details, which rang true. We've always wondered if we caused it or if it was a premonition. I think it's only human to wonder what our minds are capable of. Great work on this!

I'm a big fan of Chaos Theory, but I don't think it means that you are responsible for the deaths caused by the storm. That's part of a greater issue than you can be held accountable for.

No you arent to blame you are just human, but you are in my prayers
God Bless

Karla, my dear - I blame myself for all kinds of things. I beleive that that's a way to deal with doubt, but the weather? I can tell you that I KNOW FOR SURE that's not your fault!
Luv ya!

No blame for you, just compassion for your fellow human beings - and that's a very good thing.
Reviewed by Paul Berube 2/7/2008

We don't wish tragedy on others just that it stays away from us. That is called human nature and we all posses it. Peace, Love and Blessings Always, Paul.

You know, there are times when I've prayed for things to move away from me...and have often wondered how it has affected others. But then, I have to say that I agree with Charlie somewhat, meaning that HE is always in control.

No one's to blame, in almost five billion years Mother Earth has been pounding everything to call our attention, are we listening? naaaah!!!
But feeling sorry for the Tennessee folk.

Survivors guilt. That is what comes to mind. Wanting to be alright does not mean you condemned someone else to death. These things are bigger than any of us. Rest easy Karla.

Good work Karla. Some of your states are having very dangerous storms I know. We can't control our weather. Best wishes. Stay safe...Joyce
Reviewed by Charlie 2/6/2008
Honestly, Karla...? What makes you think you're so important that you could command the wind? The weather? The hand of God?

No blame. Just sadness, and a prayer for those whose lives have been torn apart. And if you're lucky to have the means, you roll up your sleeves and help out... I mean, you're special, but really!!

But, after having said that, your poem is of service. It shows you care. --Amazing how a storm that strikes can tear up the insides of people far away... --Charlie

Storms are capricious things, going where THEY will and unleashing their chaos along the way. Better to think "There but for the grace of God..." than to blame yourself for the randomness of storms.

You had nothing to do with causing the tornadoes of last night; it was nature at her worst. Don't ever think that. It was beyond your control. We must now pray for those affected, try to reach out a helping hand, a word of comfort during this terrible tragedy that struck many. Very well penned feelings; brava!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :(

I don't like the weather any better than you do; your StormFear is understandable: I have it too (but not to the extent as you do).

Interesting...some times we tend to blame ourselves when we don't even understand why.

You have openly related what many also contemplate, but purposely fail to relate. Best the brave step forth and set the example. Just as you have done with this great poem. You have the courage of boldness,use it well. Jon Michael Willey

Don't blame yourself my friend...I think all of us would wish the storms away...I was doing some heavy duty praying last night as the storms came ripping through the mountains of Kentucky...I think sometimes that God is letting our world that seems to have gone crazy that He is still in control. Eight confirmed tornadoes in the mountains last night...not happened in February in over a decade...not your fault my's all in the hands of our Lord! A touching write....
