Hurricane Path Map | Short Poem No. 21

Show me the hurricane path map.

This is my stage

to show you to the world,

But I have to engage

as I feel your blood.

pumping through my blood;

Your spirit in filling me.

Now, I take on this hurricane.

My soul takes over what I see,

blocking out the thoughts

that my mind wants to devour,

“I can’t do this anymore.”

Now, You’re strength gives me the power

so that I can do anything.

This spiritual adrenaline overwhelms

my usual, timid self,

as rain pelts my face in volumes,

as my body gets heavy

drenched with water and sweat.

I can barely hold my ground

as the winds screams with threats

and with power.

But in the same moment

my feet feel secure

and unshaken in the torment.

Because this is where I belong,

here in this time

to win

by your design.

And this hurricane didn’t choose me

as I stand in its path.

I chose it

and I’m filled with holy wrath.

Yes, I chose it and

I’m filled with a holy wrath.

Then, for a second, I pause.

In the eye of the storm,

fall to my knees.

and remember where I come from.

Getting up,

I brace for the next round

as this hurriance comes back,

gusts howling in their thrust,

hail scratching at my face

with a hateful disgust.

And the torrents squeeze out

my last breathe

but, from my heart

I growled these words next,

“Though I walk through

the valley of the shadow.of death,

I fear no evil

for You are with me.”
