In the aftermath …

A life
like a heartbeat, or a pulse
gathers momentum
crosses the line
that no longer divides
the power
that unstoppable equalizer
flattens without discrimination
leaving an indelible mark
And, in the aftermath
a message, recycled
what does not kill
makes you stronger,
With love
Cyclone Michael
