"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world; there is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We were all meant to shine as children do. We were all born to make manifest the glory of God that's within us - it's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
-Nelson Mandela

The sky is illuminated,
Charged with emotion.
The temper of this tempest
One can only wonder at.
How was such a storm forged?
Where was it created?
Who decided to manufacture such a work?
What angered the clouds
So much
That they chose to fight back
And reek havoc on the land below?

We never know how big we are until we are asked to rise.

I really like this! It's unique and simple and quite good. The only thing is that I tend to add a bit more detail when I ask a lot of questions just so that It doesn't get too repetivie but good work!
