Maybe I Am Out Of The Storm – Written Monday 1st November 2021 (Aged 46)

Maybe I Am Out Of The Storm

maybe i am out of the storm
maybe something-
occurred when i was born
was my ambilocal cord –
ripped or torn?
was my protective coat –
cut or shorn?
maybe i am out of the storm?

and if the storm has subsidised
do i find myself a place
one where i can hide
or do i step onto the stage
and tell my audience that i am alive

maybe i am out of the storm
and maybe something –
happened to me when i was born
was hunger –
only satisfied with tiger bread and corn?
and was my protective coat
too well worn?
maybe now i am out of the storm?
