A poem about my view of what a breeze is to a hurricane.

A breeze is to a hurricane, 

What a lantern is to the sun. 

A breeze is to a hurricane, 

What a gram is to a ton.

 

A speck of dust, 

A measly gust, 

Are nothing in the end. 

 

A breeze is to a hurricane, 

Every second of life we spend. 

And one day that hurricane, 

Will even seem so very small, 

Compared to one mighty storm, 

That hurricane was nothing at all.

 

So don’t be so worried, 

About every mistake made. 

Cause everyday life moves on,

Sweeping on through like a hurricane.

 

Because a breeze is to a hurricane, 

What a lantern is to the sun. 

And both that breeze and that lantern, 

Both die out before we’re done. 

 

Though we’ll never outlive the sun, 

Look forward to every day. 

Cause while sometimes life’s a hurricane,

And don’t know what’s comin’ your way- 

 

A life is to a hurricane, 

More than it can comprehend. 

A life is to a hurricane, 

An impact it can’t ever contend. 

 

If you wake up tomorrow, 

Thinkin’ you’re nothing to the sun. 

Always remember that to the eyes of time, 

You’re alive today and have won- 

 

Because we outlived the hurricane, 

And it’s just a breeze to us.

This is one of the most over-all best composed poems I have read in a long time. The message, the rhythm, and I usually like poems that are able to be long. Excellent, Ementior!

Thank you! I'm really trying to improve my rhythm, so I'm really glad you enjoyed it. I will admit I rushed the ending verse, but overall I think this is one of my better poems. If you have any suggestions or points of improvement, don't be afraid to let me know; I'm open to criticism.

Thank you. The first two lines have been stuck in my head for a month on repeat, so it felt great to finally finish the idea.
