    Storm raging
    Internal billows rolls
    As thunderclouds well up inside
    Lightning strikes
    The heart
    Causing aches of pains
    And
    Tremors
    9.0 on the Richter scale
    in the brain
    causing severe migraine
    anger combined with
    Indescribable sadness
    asks the question
    Why?
    Looking towards the sky
    Why?
    Attempting to make sense of this
    Why?
    Hurricane winds
    Blowing
    As hot lava of vengeance
    Boils over consuming all in its path
    Confusion set in
    Questioning the one in which I trusted
    Feeling ashamed because I’m tempted to deny him
    With every breath I take I ask
    Why?
    Suddenly storm clouds dissipates
    And raging billows
    Cease to roll
    Tumultuous winds stand at ease
    Peace be still cries a voice from beyond the skies
    As hurricane winds die
    And fiery lava flows no longer
    As volcanic ash fills the air
    Ashes to ashes dust to dust
    Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal
    Sitting down one begins to cry softly
    As the words of comfort fills the empty void
    Weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning
    As the Son of Righteousness appears
    Not to stand over me
    But to comfort me as I weep in his arms
    Saying
    Why?
    Knowing your love can give me the strength to stand
    Even though I can never make sense of any of this
    I know that I have to go on
    Remain strong
    For those that are here
    Yet he let me know that
    It’s ok to cry
    And to ask the question
    Why?

    I normally don't step in on
    a dedicated piece until
    the person it's for replies.
    But after reading this my
    heart wouldn't allow me
    to leave without saying,

    this is such a warm and
    comforting peace.
