Unleashed Fury

2014-07-13 09.33.46

And the fury of hell was unleashed by her

Nothing in her path was safe

Years of hurt welled up in her

The only place it could go was out

Out and through

Tearing buildings

And boards

And walls

And homes

The force was so great no man could have stopped her

No thought could have held her

No promise could have tamed her

She sought relief

She held it all back so long her own power within scared her too

She just let it go

And maybe she feels sorry for the devastation she caused

But she couldn’t help it

She couldn’t hold it

She couldn’t feel it

She just let go

Now she is beautiful again

She tries not think about it anymore

She is sorry that her own pain was more important than that of all others

She weeps a little

Her friends look different to her

Because they are

They could never

Will never

Be the same

She doesn’t make excuses

How could there possibly be one that could explain what happened

She owns it

Possibly puts back a little of what was taken

But knows deep down

That no one

No thing

Will ever be the same




Poem written 11/7/12


I chose to post these two poems together…this one – Unleashed Fury, and It’s Okay to Remember, because I recognized the connection between Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy and the storm that was brewing inside me. 

The poems were written several months apart during a very intense part of my emotional, and physical healing.  I know that I have had a major transformation in my healing for, although reading these poems evokes certain feelings, the distance is comforting.

I am so blessed and full of gratitude – BLESSITUDE!!!   I wish for you all to be able to weather the storms in your life.  It is a journey worth taking!!!

❤ Lorrie

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.

    1. And blessings back to you dear Michael. Yes…I am sure of that also. I just hope that I learn more about myself and my time here and I yearn to banish fear and always come from love…even on the darkest nights! 🙂


  1. Hi Brad. Thank you for adding here. I wish we could all find our way with as little pain as possible…but I’m not sure that is the way that it works. I am grateful for the things I’ve learned…maybe not so happy to experience some of the actual events…but …you know what I mean! Much love to you in your own Journey Brad…I know you are working out some things right now and I want you to know that you encourage me! Thanks for being a great friend 🙂 ❤


  2. “She owns it” and she has owned up to it, not down, as far as I can see, Lorrie.
    Seen in the light of a new day, the shadowy relics of our dim recollections
    appear less fearful; even as they remain to be the truths of our past,
    they carry less weight, and thus become less burdensome.

    Humans are quite adept, when it comes to finding silver linings.
    Good to see you’re following that thread! 🙂 I wish you well. Keith ~


    1. Hi Becky. Thank you for always supporting me. These poems were a little difficult because I remembered the pain. But it was really amazing to see this community come together to offer comfort and understanding. Have a great week! 🙂


  3. There are two things which are bound to happen; change and death. Change occurs within seconds…and that is where jewels lay..for everything happens for a reason…it just takes time to realise its secrets 🙂
    This was beautiful…made me share the reminder above 🙂
    Lots of love


    1. Oh Zara…This is so beautiful! And such a great reminder. It is sometimes hard to see the jewels immediately. ..but I agree with you completely. This has been a truth for me for as long as I can remember. Thank you dear heart ❤ ❤
