Cry Of Thunder

"Even nature needs to scream sometimes" - E.D.

Cry Of Thunder

The sky rumbles,

Past her breaking point,

As her darkness settles

Into flashes of anguish

And heavy features

She lets her anger

Clash in bright outbursts

As she roars out her pain,

Each growl more emotional

Than the last

And releases her burdens

Into a cleansing torrent

Of screams and healing tears

Her heavy heart

Reduced to rain

And, when she's ready,

She lifts up her head

And smiles—

Colors come alive across the clouds

And the sun shines again,

Showing us that

Even the sky

Needs to release her burdens,

Needs to cry sometimes

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
