I Am Enough

Some days we are just sitting, waiting for the storm to come
Looking at the sky
As we feel our heart beat
Beating through our lungs
As we struggle to breathe

The air turns to dust
The sky filters the particulars through the misty clouds
The dust circling are all around
The sound is nowhere to be found in this town

The time in between feels like a never-ending journey
The air whistles quietly through the thick air
Where there is no room to breathe or even speak
There is no peace in the silence
There is no movement in this town
Why have we stuck around?
Even with the loud sigh of relief that the skies will change and we will all live another day

But, we only unite when we are all in pain
This is not the same when a few suffer in vain
Why can’t we love each other despite their damaged mind?
Why do you hide your hatred behind your eyes but if I was you, I would not divide a society because you cannot see an invisible illness
Instead, you do, and that is okay for today

I know tomorrow the wind of change will come and bring fresh air into our lungs
You will look above and question what you have become
Yet, I will not treat you like a speck of dust
I will rise above and not breach your trust
Just like what you had done
I feel crushed but I have to trust again or live in vain under the acid rain

I have to begin again
Somewhere where I accepted and loved no matter what is to come
I am enough and people won’t just give up
