Change came at me like a deluge,
Without any forewarning,
My world was tilted off its axis.
And it seemed that,
I had to learn everything about myself anew.
The stormy clouds,
They gathered in the horizon of my thoughts.
The raging storm had grabbed my soul,
And shaken everything from within.
I would have to wait,
Wait for the things to settle,
Like rippling puddles after a turbulent rain,
For the water to settle,
So that I could see my reflection once again.
