    When it rains it pours,
    Heavy drops hitting the pavement
    Making a statement,
    About the history of African enslavement
    The clouds are dark like the hearts
    Who bought and shackled us
    The lighting strikes like the blows
    Of our own whom hit and tackled us
    The thunder is loud like the cries
    For help that went unanswered
    The wind roared against the tiny ship
    Across the great waters we traveled
    It never really mattered much about the storm
    In which we would have happily succumbed
    At least we would have been free
    To exist in other forms....

    What a thought provoking personification of a storm. We have always been as one with the earth, I enjoyed this read.
