poem about life and it's ups and downs
  The clouds thunder
through my thoughts
    as their violence
creates havoc on my sanity
  My mind stumbles
    as I try to grasp
  the reality of life
      But again,
          it eludes me

The rains show no mercy
  as the winds torture my soul
My shattered umbrella loans
    me nothing but empty hope
          My body is naked
            my heart exposed
  I search for my confidence
    frantically digging though my numbness

I realize my quest is
    for nothing that is there
      My spirit is frail
          my reasoning even less
  As I struggle to recover my balance

The turmoil of yesterday
  reluctantly unwinds
  as the promise of tomorrow
    teases my horizon
Slowly my stance grows steady
  And my will becomes determined
