You can always sense it coming

Even spot it from miles away

The dark, defining clouds

Of a brewing prodigious storm

Sometimes nature speaks

Through its thunder and lighting

Problems come in storms

You can sense one arising

Once it’s there you cannot stop

The rain from tumbling down

A rough wind blows

Taking down tree’s 

And throwing trash cans

Almost like the anger,

That pulses within you

Pouring out of you

Like a cloud bursting with rain


Falling down

On everyone around you

You don’t hide it well

Can’t even keep the slightest bit in

Like a tornado

You’re calamitous

Taking down everyone in your path

Not even giving a shit

About the pain you cause


Storms end

The dark clouds disappear

Making way for a brighter sky

Brighter you,

You become you again

Beautiful and happy

The problem is no longer 

You always give your forgiveness

But like every destructive storm

No one forgets

Excellent descriptions, and at least in part relatable.
