You thought I was

October 10, 2007
By Carrie Cravens, Dakota City, NE

You thought I was…

The rain pouring down,

Sounding on the roof above,

The reminder of all the mistakes you made

But never faced,

“The one” you prayed for

But never truly appreciated,

The thunder atop that mountain

Of obstacles you never overcame…

The ones you ignored for the “easy” life,

Even after it all I was there


I am the lightning that woke you up,

And finally showed you true happiness.
