University Life Café

man in stormy weather

Atomic Devotion

In the horizon white flashing lights hit at the ground
The thunder shrills at the heavens to come down
Black and grey clouds frighten the sky with their evil commotion
Only mountains and oceans are left to combat these great titans
Nearby is a pondering man sitting still like a Socrates statue
Sheltered by crumbling walls he is cloaked by a darkness
His white hair is a moon that shines through the night
But only God can see he is full of regrets
He has no one to blame but his atomic devotion
