Calm Before the Storm

Metro-Detroit (2008)
United States

I was a kid with composure

Experienced a lot yet,

Never saw full closure

You see…

My life was reversed

Like a turnover

By a curse

I thought hell would burn over,

Before I reached peace

It’s like war

With the Middle East

Cost too much to run

My anger is unbelievable it seems

So many children can’t even eat

I’ll cause a merciless storm

More inconceivable than all dreams unborn

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
My country
Our world
