You never quit on your music, no matter what happens. 'Cause any time something bad happens to you, it's the one place you can escape to and just . . Let it go. ---August Rush

Sometimes I pray
That the rain will fall
And wash me away with it.
Sometimes I think
That I should have been a storm,
Wild and free.
And then I wonder
What if I just leave?
Walk out
And dissipate into wind thrashing,
Light streaking,
Sound thundering,
Rain pouring?
What if I became the storm?
What's stopping me?

The author's comments:
I wrote this after an argument with some people that are very close to me. I went outside to walk and calm down, and there was a storm. It was beautiful and it calmed me down, and I came home and wrote The Storm.
