You Aren’t Fighting the Storm

Suited up
Ready for the battle
Standing in the middle
Of a raging storm.

Thinking if you win
This one battle
Against this storm
You are a hero to yourself.

The problem is
The storm is above you
Where you
Cannot reach.

You aren’t fighting the storm
You fight the rain in your face
The lightening coming down towards you
The booming thunder that frightens you.

So why fight at all
Against what you cannot see?
Against what you cannot reach?
Against what you cannot truly fight?
