The storm clouds thickened in the sky,
and raindrops splattered in my eyes.
The wind shook even giant trees.
This was more than a summer breeze.
The waters rose, cities went dark.
Hell, I considered building an ark.
Days went by, it finally passed.
Just when I thought I may not last.
I ventured out into the newfound sun.
Now that the drenching rain was done.
Mud and twigs as far as I can see,
But no damage to my house or me.
Some did not fare as well as I.
Sadly, some even tragically died.
To His power, I’ll give a nod.
That I survived, I do thank God!
