Expository Writing – Rainy Day
by Onyeali D Onyeberechi
High winds and raging rain plunder the Earth
What human action drives God’s fury upon us?
Sitting inside my room, sullen and silent
Wrought with rage against nature
I sought solace from deep within my soul
Deep in despair, many thoughts linger…
What would have been? Had the sun won the war?
My grief gives me no respite
Alas, let me lie down, tempering my concerns
My body has another agenda, for sleep summons me.
Onyeali Onyeberechi circa 1998
