Lightning by Tonya Moore

If I am struck down,
Let it be
by a thought so magnificent,
It changes the shape and texture
of the universe;

If I am broken,
Let it be
under the weight of the words
Of a poet, overcome by passion
and madness;

If I change,
Let it be
because I am evolving,
And not because I've been
tread upon or defeated;

If I am to be saved,
Let it be
by that which is in Me;

Let it be
that inchoate song that swells
and strikes my heart like
Lightning.
