In today’s world, we face a lot of injustice, betrayals, heartbreaks, bullying, sickness, loneliness. As a human being, we go through a lot of emotions and we often fight with ourselves to see things clearly, but negativity often wins for a while. We get depressed, we exclude ourselves without realizing it and alone we are fighting the storm that is hiding in our hearts.  We all have some sort of storm within.

The Storm Within

Deep into the cavity of our chest.

We fight against it.

We live with it.

We search for acceptance.

We seek friendship.

We all want to be loved.

Some get burned by a bad soul.

Getting bullied by the ones they admire.

The sense of belonging is taken away from them.

We fight against these demons within

In the hope to find peace with ourselves

and to take away the self-doubt that has been built.

Filling the hole in our chest

That once was weakened with anger

With the love of the people that stands by you every day

You can fight the storm within!
