Be who you are and speak what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
-Dr. Seuss

Just go ahead and strike me
Strike me with the flash of the Lightening
And the pop of the thunder
The blinding quickness of
And the earsplitting crash
Of sound
Strike me with deft severity
Because I am at your mercy
O' Storm
The sheer beauty of the rain
And the rattling howls of the
Thunderous uproar
Make the flags whip with frantic
Create a terrifyingly beautiful
And in the process
Hit my flailing form
Outstretched on the lawn
And coat my body with crackling
