The storm turned away

People running away
to survive from the fear of this day
trying to save things and people they adore
for the violent storm seems not to leave anything today
but for me, I’m sitting here on the bay
for I’ve some other fears, some other tales to cry upon
the storm comes and asks me
the reason it finds me motionless against the sea
I look up and tell the story of life’s betrayal
hearing it all
The storm turned away
for it found nothing more with me to destroy
it came to hurt me but met someone
who had already been struck with the storm of fate and love
finding no more portion of me left to hurt

The cries for help and running seem to fill the air
all around here and everywhere
but there lies no timid feeling anymore, no more sense of fear
it’s been like this since years and my ears have been accustomed to hear
the echoes of the violent river tides and blood thirsty storm
this new storm approaches me
asks the reason it finds me frozen against the sea
I look up and tell the story of life’s betrayal
hearing it all
The storm turned away
for it found nothing more with me to destroy
it came to hurt me but met someone
who had already been struck with the storm of life and fate
finding no more portion of me left to hurt
