    The storm in your head that
    manifest to tears holding on
    before letting
    ....................g
    ...........................O

    Can I have it?

    Cause this Summyr will bring no rain

    Let me mold it N2
    a place where butterflies
    walk just to watch
    joy fly unimpeded in the wind
    a place where flowers
    say Amen because the sun is
    kissing them again
    a place where tears
    fall and create a melody
    of serenity that evokes
    tangible epiphanies
    from you skin
    for you to drink
    and feel a new day born
    from within

    Let your storm flow
    clear the clouds in your mind where
    the questions do nothing
    but pain you...

    you are the day, the tomorrow,
    and the yesterday so the
    Summyr will always have sunshine

    and some will be left Sunburnt.

    *Queen you are a strong blak woman. Even in hearts that consume the winter, your Summyr will shine on. I got ya back (okay **** and ya front)

    take away the storm, BLAK MAN...

    let the sun shine bright on this summer day...for a very deserving BLAK WOMAN.

    let the river flow.

    Summyr may not bring rain
    but it is hard to forecast
    weather
    in terms of joy and pain

    Which of these would you
    take if I gave it?

    ...Waiting... inside
    of funnel clouds
    the storm will
    soon blow over
    showing the
    lightening's strength
    of contempt
    I did let
    ...................G
    ........................o

    and consented to
    release illuminated
    oppressiveness
    filtering rain through
    a grieving process
    where hurt
    can stretch out
    its limbs
    and absorb
    love in all
    her glory
    this place is where
    the hummingbird
    can take in nectar from
    the seed-bearing plant
    cultivating smiles
    colored in
    heaven's brilliance

    So when that storm
    passes over
    will I wander...
    will I wither...
    will I be stronger
    moving closer or farther
    away from yesterday's
    sorrow

    The subtle sounds of
    musical rains
    raise my awareness
    ...so melodious
    that my cries
    which once resembled
    thunder
    echoed thoughts
    of biographical
    inception

    Although I may be
    the day that
    wears
    the first sign of light
    as frowns
    the tranquility
    of Summyr
    stays with
    me year round
