Where all may seem lost, the forces of nature and our very existence come into play, bringing us salvation from the shattered, giving us the strength to go on

Broken shelter

Beneath the fortress in distress
Lies the weeping mistress
Water quenches not her thirst
For the rain falls from her pregnant eyes
The blanket that kept her warm
Now wet with misery
Still she lies underneath
Her bones shiver at the chill of its cold embrace
By day the sun peeps through the cracks
But by night the winds break through it
Dew trickling in with the coming of a new day
The rustling sound of a shattering enclosure
She calls out to the presence that once gave her peace
Seeking for the touch of an angel
The shelter is broken yet it still stands
All the forces of nature could not tear it down
Faithful, she shakes under its fragile enclosure
The strong wind tears the leaves off their branches
Causing them to patch up the cracks on her ceiling
Vines reaching for the sun creep up
Mushrooms and weeds taken along
They form a firm hold around her broken shelter
Mending that which was once falling apart
Mistress in distress
Now relieved from stress
Underneath the broken shelter

For on the ceiling she found love,
Climbing to the world Above.
To create a home in the dome,
Away in the mountains of her home.
For she was hurt beyond compare,
Found great peace midst despair.
For she built the Embodiment of love,
Sharing the gift from the world Above.
Bringing the respite from the calm,
That shielded her kept her safe from harm.
For the escape from the world below,
Sent just the world world into snow.
Trying to find the One with the life,
Who is the Angel the Creators Wife.
For she was the one with unhealing wound,
The one for who the whole world swooned.
As she came out to show the world in live,
This is Success the Will to Survive.
Pulling the gift that catapults her Above,
With the beauty of undying love.
That shows the Universe the voice that sings,
In the anthem of freshness the whole world brings.
