Tempest is his name, and I’m no longer afraid of storms.
- excerpt from the first writing I made of "Tempest".
I watch him run, chasing lightning on every storm. Strong, powerful and yet in his eyes there’s glimpses of fear followed by bursts of determination as he runs to catch the next one. I don’t know why he does it, if it’s a game or a demanding task given to him.
Sometimes I see our kind in him, when life strikes with a challenge we meet it with fear, and then with determination as we try and fail until we conquer it once and again.
I guess we learn to ride the storm as Tempest does. Shy at the beginning but strong and wild as we learn how to conquer our challenges. Maybe someday I’ll learn to trust myself enough to face the storms in my life, to conquer my fears.
To ride the storm like Tempest does. “
Thank you for watching =)
