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
