    Excerpt from Skin Folk by Nalo Hopkinson

    Whether the weather be cold
    Or whether the weather be hot
    We will weather the weather
    Whatever the weather
    Whether we like it or not

    Enjoyed the words that you shared with us! Inspired a few from me!

    :em0100:As the wind becomes stronger
    The river it tends to persuade into
    Let the mind take reverence that ripples may
    Begin to winde into descriptions of windows looked out of
    Recongnizing everything will relate to when why and what for

    bad weather is sad but clever how it knows what it harms here blows a storm as the population goes on alarm as buildings fall killing them all touched by a whirlwind as it hurl and spin out of control no doubt many souls lost

    determines my ability to survive,
    i have differences and similarities within me,
    i expose them all to the harshness,
    how long can we last in the blizzard?
    the winds gust seldom then turn back,
    clawing at the aspects of my survival,
    until none is left but do i drop down on my knees?
    i get back up which is the power of will,
    you you you you and you can!
    we are determined to survive,
    the snow blindness of the negative sun shine,
    is the egotistical approach when they put hands up,
    eyebrows drown to vision is the feeling,
    quit your defense of ignorance,
    take it harder like hail balls upon your hard-head,
    let your arms feel like welcoming inn instead of selfishness of self,
    the repetition of death at its finest,
    you backing no one up but yourself,
    as the snow piles up freezes softly degrees decline stride wholeheartedly,
    and sow shall your soul if you are lost dearly departed,
    better watch your wind chill,
    cause what goes around comes around gracefully reasoned,
    now eat your cold weather icicle,
    or melt until you drop down on point,
    making a new sheet of ice,
    to be rode over as the written,
    the lake of frozen reflections,
    or just remained crushed prepared bagged,
    either way cold weather tests my last's last.
