Judgment Day - Poem by Barry Middleton

the clouds are coming
the storm is drumming
soon it will be too late

the wind is blowing
with no one knowing
what is to be their fate

the clock is running
no guile or cunning
can stop the final toll

no use for shelter
the waves and welter
will come for every soul

where should one go
when fierce winds blow
to carry us all away

best to be ready
on a path that's steady
and it won't hurt to pray

    So you are currently in the middle of a literal storm. Did you write this one today or is this an older one that you chose to post? Just curious. :) I like the flow of the writing and the rhyming. Yes, judgement day is coming for us all...nothing we can do to stop it. Like the storm. Thanks Barry. (Report) Reply

    I wrote this about a year ago. In Florida there is always a storm in summer. Usually they dont last three days though. Glad you liked it.
