I Cannot Stop The Rain Now

I cannot stop the rain now
its already soaked in the ground
perhaps there is a way how
but none that I’ve found

no I cannot stop the lightning
its already split the tree
my powerlessness is frightening
I’m old, tired & I cannot see

and if the answers were mine
I’d share it with you
its not my usual find
I remain confused

and I cannot make the rain now
if I could I would not
for it only causes pain now
it is flooding all we’ve got

I cannot calm the winds
so turbulent inside
aware of all my sins
so aware of the limited ride
I cannot stop the violence
our emotions inflict on ourselves
I’d be happy in cold silence
as opposed to this persistent hell
and I cannot stop the rain now
