It's cold in here
Then the hail starts
My dogs and I watch it
From the front door
Weather fit for Hades
If the sun ain't coming
Out today
Better get my cowboy boots on
Go out get some wood
Build a fire
Because many times in life
It's up to you to get the warm to yourself
As a man on a TED TALK
Told me today:
1.  Don't listen to others negative predictions for you
2.  Don't pity or beat yourself up
3.  Everyone wants love; especially of self
His name is Sean Stephenson
He's in a wheel chair and says
People laugh at him all the time
But when he looks in the mirror
He loves the man looking back at him
When it's cold
Do something about it
Let the hail come
Let the wind blow
Let the rain beat down
As the fire builds
Bringing the warm to soul
As I write this
The hail stops
The sun breaks through
The black skies
Even if only for a moment
It is hope.
