Horrid Surprises - Poem by Lady Darjeeling

A powerful voice
Screaming in my head
It wants me to change -
Change something -

But it's so loud I can't even understand
Or think about what it might want
Deafening shouts
Whenever I am still
Painful cries
Whenever I hold my breath
Why am I deaf?

I want to understand
Why life holds such horrid surprises
Whenever peace arises

    sounds like a bad dream...the amply conveys..turmoil and hurt and unanswered questions
    the howling winds of adversity travel through the page at break neck speed.
