DAY 13 The Coming Storm

(david m. bailey)
December 3, 2008
david m. bailey
more surgery and treatment coming...
Just when I thought the storm was over
Just when I thought the skies were clear
A Dark cloud showed up on the horizon
And the wind started stirring up the fear
Part of me wants to stand up to the tempest
The other part just wants to run and hide
Make believe the winds ain’t really blowing
Make believe I’m still safe inside
But you know it rains on the righteous and the wicked
And it rains on all the others too
I’m not one to complain – I don’t mind a little rain
I just wish I knew exactly what to do
I mean, I’m trying to take it easy but it’s hard
Every second feels like I’m on guard
Too many kettles in the fire
Too many balls up in the air
Meanwhile, the storm keeps getting closer
No one ever said this would be fair
So this is it – put some plywood on the windows
Stock up. Huddle down
The hurricane don’t know this ain’t my first rodeo
We’ll see who’s standing at the end of this round
If I have any say in the matter – and as far as I can tell, I do
You’ll find me chained down to my cornerstone
Watching the sunrise chase away the morning dew.
