Calm Storm

It's raining outside
Someone's crying inside
About the child she cannot have
About the child you threw away
She abstained until marriage
You gave yourself to to a different guy every week
There's thunder outside
She's screaming inside
Inside her shattered heart
Screaming why? why me?
Why me, when all I wanted so much is to be a mommy
There's a rainbow out now
There's peace in her heart
Understanding that it will be okay
She hands her burden to God
He calms her storms
