A storm has erupted around me
I ignored the warnings
Blatantly looked the other way
Now the signs scare me

Bigger, stronger until officially, a Category 5

Too late I realize I should have evacuated

But where would I have gone?

There are no shelters around here

All that is left to do now is damage control

Put on my mask
Smile, pretend that I’m strong

I have to be strong!

But you can’t ignore the signs of a Category 5

Strong winds that blow you off your feet

Rain drops that prick your skin like needles
Projectiles hunting for prey like hunters

COMFORT: Nothing will come near me
I am keeping my eyes on Him

It blows my mind
But that is all the help I need.
