Hour 7

Brute force winds
rip leaves from branches
trees bow and sway
and she stands, stoic
proudly, she walks through
the storm
her head held high,
does not bow against the wind

Her bones quake with each thunderclap
her heartbeat jumps with each lightening strike
a war waged within, against herself
hidden beneath the facade
of strength
