The day dawned cloudy cool,
Broken promises seemed to rule,
Drizzle rain made one more blue,
Taking heart of strong-willed too.
The in sudden fury, the storm broke loose,
Lightning flashes vertical shaft
Thunder crashes valley deep
Passion furies from sultry heat.
Wave after wave rain’s pounding beat,
Rolling wave after rolling wave
Rocks day’s soul with passion sweet.
Every lightning’s pulsing shaft
Excites storm to new release.
Tension builds, lightning strikes,
Thunder crashes valley deep.
Torrents come from on high
Wave after wave releasing wet,
Moisture giving her life to earth.
Lightning’s flash vertical shaft
Thunders crash valley deep
Wind and wet take breath away
And yet the best is to come.
Building slowly in the west
Heart beats faster and excites
As storm’s fury reignites
Pounding, pounding waves of wet.
Then as suddenly as it can
Tension relieved, quick as began
Wind’s breath subsides,
Calm’s norm presides.
Storm’s passion satisfied, day is sent
With golden sun the clouds are rent
With sunny afterglow evening went
Into nighttime’s dream well spent.
Life and love no longer blue.

Enter bravely if you dare
But with certainty beware
Even I’m totally not aware
The cauldron boiling there.
Evil and scary even I admit
Whenever I venture into that pit,
Where whatever is so brazen writ
The light of day should not permit.
Beauty will hold no sway,
Will never evil keep away,
Charm may beguile and delay,
Truth sought will rule the day.
So welcome you are, venture in,
Partake the glory if you find within,
For the darkness may yield only sin,
Or maybe, brightness rewards will win.

The vast majority of humanity
Seek to destroy with inanity
Much quicker than profanity.
Let them curse, I shall ignore.
Never was the world in step
With this strange beast called me.
If you don't get along, no sense
One trying to join, you see.
I've tried to run the silly race,
To oblivion. A race to disgrace
Where free thought is condemned.
Now, myself I only want to face.
Be smart and keep to my own pace,
I need to find that special place
To reach beyond the shallow role,
Where I can cleanse my very soul.
