    STORMS OF LIFE
    I AM SO TIRED OF JUST LINGERING BECAUSE YOU DESEPERATELY CHOOSE TO BLOW MY WAY LEVELING ME BEYOND HUMAN BELIEF
    HUMAN RELIEF IS NOT WHAT I SEEK
    TRYING HARD JUST TO FREE MY MIND
    BUT WHEN I LOOK AROUND EYES TRYING TO FOCUS ON SOMETHING POWERFUL
    ALL I FIND IS THE MUDDY WATERS AND THIS FILTH AMONGS US
    NOT TO FAR FROM THE SPOT WHERE THEY WOULDVE HUNG US
    I JUSTED WANTED TO OPEN MY MOUTH TO DAY FOR A REASON
    SO THE VICTORY CAN TASTE SWEET THIS IS HURRICANE SEASON
    STORM OF LIFE IM THE VICTIM AND THE DANGER
    I GOT CHAINS ON MY HANDS
    AND
    I GOT CHAINS OF MY FEET

    STORMS OF LIFE
    WHERE EYES OPEN AS WINDOWS TO CLOSED SOULS
    AND EVERYBODYS IN SOME TYPE OF TROUBLE
    BEST BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY
    THE LORD KNOWS
    STORMS OF LIFE CAUSING ME TO RETREAT FROM SOCIETY THERE IS NO SOCIETY AND INSIDE OF ME ITS A STORM
    IT RAINED
    AND ALL I COULD REMEBER IT USE TO BE WARM
    AND THE FOOD THAT USE TO BE WARM
    NO RUNNING WATER NO BATHS NO MEDICINE
    NO LOVE NO PEACE
    I SAID NO PEACE CAN BE FOUND AROUND THIS RAINBOW
    BUT THEW LORD KNOWS
    STORMS OF LIFE
    NO LIGHTS NO MONEY NO SYSTEM NO LOOVE NO JUSTICE JUST PEACE
    A PEACE OF MIND
    IN THIS STORM OF LIFE

    Our prayers go out to those who are suffering as a result of hurricane Katrina. Life is such a blessing. As it is written you don't know the hour when the Son of Man will come to take you home. Are you living right?

    wow I told myself that I am not going to read any more about Katrina but here I am touch with the depth of my soul wanting to help. Relentlessly upset how Mr. Bush spent the day when it was time for him to react. See defeanse was more important than new pumps. Now we are here reaping his mistake while the whole nation sits infront watching CNN Live.

    This is how the victim feels, in chains and helpless like a slave. Emotionally brought and well written piece.

    A crying shame, this remains deeply felt.
