Thunder & Lightning

She sits still



It wasn’t always so

When she was younger

The energy

Coursing through her veins

Could not be contained

But as she grows older

Wisdom expands

Her tongue is held

Words refrained

Emotions calmed

Don’t be mistaken

Stillness doesn’t

Equate to lack of feeling

Or the ability to be disruptive

Look closely

There is lightning in her eyes

Keep your distance

When she has had enough

Of stupidity

Or lies

The thunder will roll

And the lighting will strike

E.A. Fussell
