Thunderstorm

The way thunder rumbles

The way I see the lightning

Is what makes me scared

Is what makes my stomach tighten

Thunder, do you have to be so loud?

And lightning, must you strike down?

I stay in my room

Listening to my music

In a hope to tune the thunder out

But why does it not work?

Why is thunder so loud?

Why is lightning so white and bright?

"Maybe the rain was angry." I thought

But why?

Why is the rain so upset

Is it something we did?

Most importantly, do we have the chance to fix it?
